Felhaber Hat Trick Not Enough as Petes Storm Back in Third Period

January 2, 2018 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) - Ottawa 67's News Release

OTTAWA, ON - Tye Felhaber scored a natural hat trick in the third period pacing the 67's to a 4-2 lead through two periods of play, but the Petes stormed back with three unanswered goals in the third period with the winner coming with less than 90 seconds remaining to spoil Ottawa's final game of 2017.

After trailing 1-0 after the opening frame, the Barber Poles produced an impressive second period outscoring the Petes 4-1 and outshooting the home side 17-8 in that middle frame.

Kody Clark's 14th of the season pulled Ottawa level just over two minutes into the second, but Pavel Gogolev, who opened the scoring for Peterborough in the first, restores the Petes lead four-and-a-half minutes later.

Queue Tye Felhaber.

The Pembroke native netted a natural hat trick in the span of 4 minutes and 22 seconds to vault the visiting 67's into a 4-2 lead after 40 minutes.

Pavel Gogolev completed his hat trick at the 8:10 mark of the third period to pull the Petes within a goal. Adam Timleck's 11th of the season pulled Peterborough level with just over four minutes to play with Alex Black's second of the season completing the Petes comeback scoring with 88 seconds to go.

The 67's conclude 2017 on a four-game losing skid, but will open 2018 with a rematch against the Petes at The Arena at TD Place on January 6.
