Sarnia goalie Ethan Langevin was named first star of the game and felt the team played well.
“It was definitely a good game. I felt really well. We kept with them for most of the game and it’s a shame of the outcome. There’s some positives we can take out of the game, like we stayed disciplined. We just played a really good game.”
Langevin was peppered with 42 shots but didn’t let that bother him.
“For me as a goalie when you’re facing a good team you’re getting a lot of high quality shots and it helps you stay in the zone the whole time.”
Pete’s goalie Hunter Jones turned aside 26 shots.
Sarnia was 0-2 on the power play while Peterborough was 0-1.
