Attack2-regBy Tracey Richardson

The Owen Sound Attack started the new year with a win that nearly didn't happen.

Beating the Kitchener Rangers in a shootout on New Year's Day seemed an unlikely outcome mid-way through the third period, when the Rangers were up 4-2. But then the Attack's Ethan Szypula pulled the Attack to within one, and with just over a minute left in regulation and with goaltender Michael McNiven on the bench, the Attack evened the score on a goal by Zach Nastasiuk – his second of the game.

attack-red-regThe Owen Sound Attack are set to kick off 2015 with a bang, playing three games in just three days beginning January 1.

Owen Sound will play the Kitchener Rangers for the 7th time this year when the teams meet for a New Years Day matinee game at the Bayshore. The Attack boast a 4-0-0-2 record against their divisional rival this year, but the series has been a close one as three of the six games have needed a shootout to decide the winner.

Waterloo native and Owen Sound leading scorer Kyle Platzer has largely been an X-factor in the six meetings, picking up four goals and six assists against the team he grew up cheering for.

hometoen-hockey-regOWEN SOUND - The city has arranged for free off-site parking and shuttle buses to accommodate Attack fans arriving for the 7:30 pm game on Saturday January 3. This is due to the parking spaces displaced by the Rogers Hometown Hockey event at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre this weekend.

The two off-site parking locations are the National Grocers/former LCBO lot on 2nd Avenue East at 11th Street East, and the Health Unit lot on 17th Street East. Buses will run continuously from these locations to the Bayshore starting at 6 pm on Saturday. Buses will return Attack fans to the parking lots beginning immediately following the game until all passengers have departed.
