Instead of the classic western movie scene of a shootout in Dodge, I personally experienced a nerve-racking (or is it wracking) shootout in Plymouth. Plymouth, Michigan that is.
On this road trip the Peterborough Petes are finding different ways to win games. Last night in Windsor they won 4-3 in overtime.
Tonight in Plymouth the game finished after regulation time in a 4-4 tie. After 5 minutes of overtime the game was still tied so we went to a shootout. Three skaters from each time have their "shot" at scoring. Whichever team "pots" the most goals in the shootout gets the win. The Petes prevailed and won the game 5-4. It was an exciting come-from-behind victory for our Petes. The game was marked by two penalty shots, one for each team. Each team scored on their penalty shot opportunity.
Whew! It was a close one!
