KITCHENER, Ont. - Parker Van Buskirk overcame a shaky first period to post a 36-save performance Monday, leading the Kitchener Rangers to a come-from-behind 3-2 win over the Guelph Storm in OHL action.

Van Buskirk allowed a pair of first-period goals but was unbeatable the rest of the way for the Rangers (5-2-0-1), stopping 25 shots in the second and third periods combined. Steve Lock provided the game winner with 4:41 left in the second period as Kitchener ran its points streak to five games (4-0-0-1).

Brandon Mashinter had a goal and an assist, T.J. Battani scored the other Rangers goal and Ben Shutron and Scott Timmons each had a pair of assists in the win.

Cody McNaughton replied with both goals for the Storm (7-3-0-1), while netminder Thomas McCollum stopped 19 shots in the loss.
