Rangers Blank Colts At The AUD

Kitchener, ONTARIO - The Barrie Colts were at The Aud on Friday night to play the Rangers in the teams’ first game back after the holidays. (Colts 15-18-1-0 / Rangers 14-17-3-0)

Richardson saved all 26 shots he faced in the shutout that earned him first star honours.Isaac Langdon scored his second of the season in the second period and Nick McHugh sealed the deal for the Rangers on an empty net goal with five seconds left in the game on an assist by Luke Richardson.


The first period featured six penalties, four to Barrie and two to Kitchener, but neither side could break the deadlock.

The closest the Rangers came to a goal was on their second powerplay of the period, which came at 9:52 on a Jacob Tortora interference penalty. An Alexey Lipanov goal was called back after the referees determined there was goalie interference on the Colts Kai Edmonds.

The shots after the opening 20 were 9-9.

The Rangers finally broke the goose egg at 12:00 of the 2nd period while on the powerplay. A Donovan Sebrango shot from the blueline was tipped in by Isaac Langdon who earned his second goal of the season to put Kitchener up 1-0.

Eric Guest also earned an assist on the goal.

The period would end with the Rangers maintaining their one-goal advantage while outshooting the Colts 18-16.

The only goal of the third period came on an empty net goal by Nick McHugh, his eighth of the season, on assists from Michael Vukojevic and Luke Richardson.

Richardson earned himself first star honours in the shutout.

The Rangers outshot the Colts 30-26.
