Ryan Wagner stopped 27 shots in Chatham’s win

It was a comeback worthy of the playoffs.

The Chatham Maroons battled back to beat London 6-3 at Memorial Arena last night, tying up the Western Conference semi-finals at two games apiece.

Chatham was trailing 3-2 heading into the third before earning four unanswered goals in the final five minutes.

Josh King scored a pair, including the equalizer and an empty netter to cap off the third, and says they’ve got some good momentum now.

“It’s definitely good to get a head-start for the next three nights,” King says. “Hopefully we can get one (Wednesday night) and steal a fourth one on Thursday.”

King and Bryce Yetman each finished the game with a pair of goals and an assist.

Alixe Saliba scored the go-ahead goal at 18:52 with assists from Josh King and Grant Spence.

“That’ one’s pretty big, but I owe that to all the teammates for tying it up and working us hard,” Saliba says. “That’s really a team effort right there, that’s not one guy, that’s one whole unit right there.”

Ryan Wagner got the win in net for the Maroons, stopping 27 shots.

The series shifts back to London for game five tonight, puck drop is 7:30pm.
