If there were hockey gods in attendance at the Owen Sound Attack's annual Pink In The Rink game Sunday afternoon, they were definitely working for the home team.

The Attack beat Windsor 5-4 in overtime in a game that should have been over with less than a minute to go in regulation. The Attack, down 4-3, pulled goaltender Jack Flinn for the extra man, and nearly lost the game when the Spitfires had a clear shot into the empty net but hit the post instead.

Seconds later, the Attack's Holden Cook netted the tying goal to send the game into overtime.

Platzer continued with the hot hand on Saturday, picking up another two goals and an assist, as well as being named the games 2nd Star in a 7-4 loss to the Soo Greyhounds on Saturday.

A kata is a series of pre-arranged movements following a prescribed pattern. There is an inherent rhythm and pace to the movements, a "beat" if you will. A kata can be compared to a piece of music, as simple as a lullaby or nursery rhyme, or as complex as a symphony.

Attack-north-regThe Owen Sound Attack is set to head north for a three game road trip, taking on the North Bay Battalion, Sudbury Wolves, and Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in three games in three nights beginning on Thursday. The Attack will look to build on the momentum they gained thanks to a big win over the Ottawa 67's on Sunday, Oct. 5.

In Sunday's 7-2 victory, captain Zach Nastasiuk and rookie import Petrus Palmu both found the back of the net twice, while 1st year forward Jonah Gadjovich scored the 1st goal of his OHL career.
