Rangers Get by Attack

Kitchener | by Ken Hashizume  

A last-second goal by Suzuki was denied after video review.

The Owen Sound Attack were not able to take this one in Kitchener.

A last-second goal by Nick Suzuki was disallowed and that allowed the Rangers to squeak out a 4-3 victory on Friday night in Kitchener.

The goal was ruled to have been knocked in by a glove after video review.

Trailing 1-0 in the second period, Suzuki and Brady Lyle scored consecutive goals 1:35 apart to give the Attack a 2-1 lead.

Down 3-2 in the third, Aidan Dudas would tie the game for Owen Sound with his 14th of the season but Nick McHugh scored what turned out to be the game-winner for Kitchener with 5:14 left in the period.

Suzuki's goal was his 21st of the season giving him 128 in his OHL career and it ties him with Andrew Brunette for third all-time, five back of franchise leader Bobby Ryan.

Former Barrie Colt Alexey Lipanov (3 assists), Reid Valade (1 goal, 1 assist), and Riley Damiani (2 assists) had multi-point games for the Rangers (17-17-3-0).

Luke Richardson made 27 saves in the win while Mack Guzda stopped 28 shots for the Attack (20-15-1-2).

Kitchener scored on their only power play opportunity while Owen Sound went 0-for-3.

The next game for the Attack is Saturday when they host the North Bay Battalion for a 7:30 face off at the JD McArthur Arena.
