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.
