NHL.com @NHLdotcom

Jaroslav Janus shook off two second-period mistakes to move the Erie Otters into the middle of a logjam in the Ontario Hockey League's Midwest Division standings.

Janus made 36 saves - one coming on a first-period penalty shot - and Brandon Biggers had a pair of goals to lead the Otters to a 4-2 win over the Kitchener Rangers.

Janus stopped all 12 shots he faced in the first period, including a Jeff Skinner penalty shot. After the Rangers trimmed a 3-0 deficit to one with goals 57 seconds apart in the second period, Janus buckled down and was perfect the rest of the way as the Otters (13-13-2-0) won for the second time in three games.

With the win, Erie drew even with the Rangers (13-11-1-1) and kept pace with the Owen Sound Attack in the race for third place in the division. Owen Sound beat Barrie 5-2 Wednesday, leaving all three teams at 28 points.
