Whalers lose in Guelph, then beat Toronto

The Plymouth Whalers concluded their three-game week with a 3-2 shootout win over the Toronto St. Michael's Majors Saturday night.

Chris Terry scored the winner (pictured) on the shootout's final shot. Steve Ward scored Plymouth's regulation goals and Ryan Nie made 40 saves.

“As I came in, he (Toronto goalie Justin Peters) came out pretty far to take the shot away,” Terry explained. “So I came in and gave a little fake shot and he fell for it and just froze. I was able to walk around him (and score).”

Friday night, John Armstrong scored both goals for Plymouth in a 7-2 loss on the road against the Guelph Storm. Armstrong's second goal, eight seconds into the third period, set an all-time franchise record for a goal at the start of a period, a record previously held by Keith Redmond, who scored nine seconds into the second period in a 5-2 loss in Belleville on Feb. 15, 1992.

Justin Garay stopped 30 shots in the defeat.

The Whalers started the week with a 5-2 win Thursday night in Windsor.

Plymouth plays Wednesday night in Owen Sound, Friday night in Sarnia and Saturday night at home against London.
