Rangers show love for fans with win at Valentine’s Day Game

It was a loud night at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium with the Kitchener Rangers finally back in the win column.

The Blueshirts won a key divisional matchup against the Guelph Storm Tuesday night, with a 4-3 final.

Most of those goals scored in what was a thrilling third period.

CityNews 570’s Colour Commentator Paul Fixter said it’s a big win heading into a big weekend at home against Mississauga and Sudbury.

“I think the important thing is to just get that feeling of feeling good about yourself again and positive vibes as you head into a few games that are winnable.”

Fixter added the Blueshirts’ power play has been struggling over the past few games – but looked stronger Tuesday night.

“The powerplay has to be clicking as we get closer to the playoffs, as does the penalty kill, and tonight the penalty kill was pretty good and the power play was able to get one on the board, so I think those are positives, now they need to find a way to build off that and continue to do that game in and game out.”

Hunter Brzustewicz got that powerplay goal, which was ultimately the game winning goal.

Goals were also scored by two names that haven’t been on the scoresheet in a while, rookie Tanner Lam and Seattle Kraken first-round pick Eduard Salé, getting his first home-game goal.

“One of the things that we have talked about a lot through the year is the depth scoring this team has. I don’t think they expect Salé to be a depth scorer because he is a high-end offensive player, they need him scoring. Hopefully he can find his goal-scoring abilities on a more regular basis.”

Fans will head back to the Aud on Friday night and Sunday afternoon for the next couple of games.

Both games can be heard live on CityNews 570.
