Whalers still afloat, take Game 4 in OT

Dan Collins’ third goal of the game at 10:55 of overtime, completing a natural hat trick, gave the Plymouth Whalers a 4-3 come-from-behind victory over the Guelph Storm Wednesday night in Guelph to stay alive in their Western Conference semifinal series.

The Storm still lead the series, 3-1, with Game 5 tomorrow night in Plymouth.

James Neal scored the other Plymouth goal, his team-leading sixth of the playoffs, and Whalers' captain John Vigilante added three assists.

Goaltender Justin Peters made 39 saves for the victory.

Puck drop Friday night is 7:30 p.m. at the Compuware Sports Arena.
