It was OT again at the RBC Cup on Monday night, and it was another quick finish – the Wellington Dukes needed less than a minute to complete the two-goal comeback and find their first win.

WELLINGTON DUKES 3, STEINBACH PISTONS 2 (OT)
Ted McGeen added his name to the growing list of overtime heroes, scoring 59 seconds into the extra period to give the Dukes a win over the Pistons on Monday night. He took a drop pass from Andrew Rinaldi at the offensive blue-line and picked the top corner on the short side past Steinbach goaltender Matthew Radomsky.

It was the fourth time in five games overtime was needed, already a tournament record for one preliminary round. It also ties the overall tournament mark, including playoff games, set in 2014 and equalled last year.

“We’ve had to [battle back] it all season long. We have the ability to come out and start fast, but we have had some slow starts. It’s just a matter of getting our feet under us. We played two days ago, had a day off in between, and practiced twice since our first game. Just getting into the games, it seems like sometimes it’s a long wait. We get right back at it tomorrow night and can keep the momentum going.”
-- John Druce, head coach, Wellington Dukes
