Jason Akeson’s six points making it 11 in the past two games led the Kitchener Rangers to a 8-0 shut-out win over the Belleville Bulls.
Michael Catenacci scored through the pads of Bulls netminder Tyson Teichmann just 62-seconds into the game off a feed from Jason Akeson. The Rangers took a 2-0 lead after Gabriel Landeskog’s one-timer resulted in a goal at the 6:29 mark. Belleville was unable to answer Kitchener and was outshot 15-9 in the period.
Akeson deflected a shot by Catenacci past Belleville’s Teichmann to put the Rangers up 3-0 at 1:28 of the second period. With just a couple seconds left in the period Marcantuoni netted his fourth of the season. The Bulls headed to the dressing room down by four goals.
42-seconds in to the third period, Matt Tipoff advanced the Rangers 5-0 over the Bulls. Landeskog made it 6-0 scoring his second goal of the game at the midway mark of the period. Matia Marcantuoni buried a wrist shot at 10:58 to push the Rangers up 7-0. Akeson closed out scoring in the game at 12:33 to give the Rangers their second eight goal game in-a-row after a 8-2 victory over the London Knights on Thursday, November 4th.
