Lightning prospect Michael Zador, who had only dressed as backup once in the Attackâ€™s last several games, was the surprise starter for Owen Sound Friday night in a must-win situation. Though he allowed five goals, Zador did pick up the win when the Attackâ€™s Matt Petgrave scored on the first shot of overtime. Owen Sound had a 5-3 lead entering the third period before being outshot 17-7 and outscored 2-0 to send the game to an extra period. Geoffrey Schemitsch was scoreless for the third straight game, but was plus-1 for the victors. Game 4 is Sunday in Owen Sound with Zador the likely starter - though one never knows with Owen Sound. Before Friday, he hadnâ€™t started a game since Game 1 of their second round series with Plymouth. Scott Stajcer, who had been starting for the Attack, didnâ€™t even dress Friday. Owen Soundâ€™s coach, Mark Reeds, has juggled his three goalies all playoffs. He was named OHL Coach of the Year in April.
