Attack goalie Michael McNiven picked up his second win Saturday in a thrilling overtime game against the visiting Guelph Storm, extending the Attack's winning streak to four games.

McNiven stopped 38 of 40 shots, and the Attack got a goal each from Kyle Platzer and Petrus Palmu to send the 2-2 game into overtime. Palmu and Platzer also assisted on each other's goals.

The extra frame had the sold-out crowd buzzing, as a shot from Guelph's Robbi Fabbri broke the glass behind the Attack net just four seconds into overtime, leading to a 15-minute delay. The Attack also had to kill off a two-minute penalty in overtime, which saw Zach Nastasiuk get a shorthanded breakaway opportunity.

For once, Attack rookie Keenan Reynolds had more on his mind than hockey as his team prepared to play the Barrie Colts Wednesday night.

Reynolds is from Ottawa and his father Jim works near the Parliament buildings. When the 16-year-old heard the news of the deadly shooting in the nation's capital, "I was freaked out," he said after the Attack's 6-1 win against Barrie.

"I was relieved my family was OK, but I heard later a soldier was shot and killed," Reynolds said. "I was happy my family was safe, but one family's not going to have a brother coming home, and it's just tough to think of in my hometown."

By the time he hit the ice for the warmup, Reynolds said he was feeling thankful to be playing the game he loves.
