Whalers down 2-0 to Attack

Scoring just one goal in two games won't get it done in the playoffs, but maybe the Plymouth Whalers are hoping to be the exception.

The Whalers opened their first-round OHL playoff matchup with the Owen Sound Attack last weekend and lost 1-0 in Owen Sound Friday night and 6-1 Saturday night at the Compuware Sports Arena.

Friday, former Western Michigan forward Jeff Kryzakos scored the lone goal and goalie Mike Brown, formerly of the Saginaw Spirit, stopped all 21 shots he saw for the shutout. Plymouth goalie Ryan Nie made 33 saves.

Brown was again stellar Saturday night as he stopped 26 shots, only allowing a late second-period goal to Whalers co-captain John Mitchell. Nie finished with 32 saves.

Game Three is Tuesday night in Owen Sound with Game Four going Thursday night in Plymouth at 7:30 p.m.
