Whalers in first after beating Knights, Colts

The Plymouth Whalers are back in first place in the OHL West after two wins last weekend and two Saginaw losses.

Friday night in London, Plymouth's three Chicago-area natives all scored in a 3-0 win. Jared Boll, Gino Pisellini and Mike Letizia tallied for Plymouth in a game maybe most remembered for a Justin Peters-Adam Dennis goalie fight at center ice early in the third period.

Until that point, Peters made 31 saves. Justin Garay played the last 14:35 and made two saves.

Derek Merlini, Pisellini, Evan Brophey and Peters all received two-game suspensions for their roles in the brawl capped by the goalie tilt.

Saturday night at home, Plymouth got out to a 3-0 lead and held on for a 3-2 win over Barrie. Captain John Vigilante, Andrew Fournier (pictured above) and James Neal scored for the Whalers while Garay made 37 saves for his first win since November.

The Whalers put just 16 shots on Colts' netminder Dan LaCosta.

Plymouth (27-23-1-3) is in Owen Sound Friday night and back home Saturday to play Guelph.
