Alex Nedeljkovic stopped 52 of 53 Guelph Storm shots as the Plymouth Whalers pulled out a 2-1 win over the Guelph Storm Tuesday night in Plymouth.
Guelph now leads the best-of-seven, opening-round OHL playoff series two games to one.
Zack Lorentz scored a third-period goal for Plymouth that broke a 1-1 tie and gave the Whalers a win in front of an announced crowd of 1,957.
Ryan Horvat had the lone goal for Guelph, which outshot its hosts 53-27 in the game.
In the first period of the game, the Storm’s Brock McGinn was given a game misconduct for a check to the head of a Plymouth player.
Earlier in the day, the league announced that two Whalers players have been suspended for incidents in Game 1 of the series.
Yannick Rathgeb has been handed a 10-game suspension and Carter Sandlak, a former Storm player, has been suspended for four games.
Rathgeb’s suspension is due to a hit to the head of the Storm’s Robby Fabbri, who left that game and hasn’t played since.
Sandlak’s suspension is because of a stick-swinging incident that saw him connect with a two-hander to the shoulder of Horvat.
Game 4 of the series is Wednesday in Plymouth at 7 p.m.
