Petes Score Three Unanswered to Overcome IceDogs
(Peterborough, ON) - Zach Gallant scored the overtime winner plus another goal and assist in a 6-5 come-from-behind Petes win over the Niagara IceDogs on Thursday night, moving the Maroon and White into first place in the Ontario Hockey League.
Mason McTavish (11) made his presence known in his first game since returning from the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, scoring 1:33 into the game and again in the third period. Gallant (7,8), as well as Liam Kirk (12) and Declan Chisholm (2), scored in regulation before putting away the game winner 30 seconds into overtime.
Semyon Der-Arguchintsev recorded four assists, marking his third four-point game this season and moving him into first in the league in assists with 27 on the season. Kirk and Chisholm registered two helpers apiece, while Gallant, McTavish, and David Maier added single assists.
Chisholm's three-point night brought his OHL point total to 100, reaching the milestone in 174 career games.
Final shots were 46-24 in favour of Peterborough. Peterborough's power play unit, which is the best on home ice this season at 37.9%, went 3/5 while killing 2/4 penalties.
Before the game, the Petes teamed up with Rebound Skates and Golf to bring 60 new Canadians to the Peterborough Memorial Centre to try hockey. For many, it was their first time on skates and their first time taking in a live hockey game.
The Petes wrap up their week with a visit to Barrie to face the Colts on Saturday, November 16 at 7:30pm. The next home game for the Petes is on Thursday, November 21 when they host the Kingston Frontenacs at 7:05pm.
