11/22 Recap: Lemieux, Compher strike twice; Makarov shines

In Saturday action, Brendan Lemieux scored 1:00 into the opening period and later added a second marker as Barrie was defeated by Peterborough 4-3. Lemieux's pair of power play tallies, his second two-goal performance of the season, earned him the game's number two star. He has 19 points (12+7) in 17 games this season, including five goals in his last five outings. Eight of his 12 goals have come with the man advantage.

Petes forward Eric Cornel was named the game's number three star thanks his game-winning goal and an assist, and now has his second three-game point streak of the season. Cornel's productive night keeps him above the point-per-game line with 21 (7+14) at the 20-game mark.

Both clubs go right back at it on Sunday with the Petes visiting Mississauga and the Colts traveling to Belleville.


Vaclav Karabacek scored the game-winning goal for the second straight night and added a helper as Gatineau cruised past Acadie-Bathurst 4-1.
