Jay McKee was playing a hunch. The Kitchener Rangers coach has really liked the play of his fourth unit of late and didn't want to break it up. But the return of Cole Carter from a one-game absence due to an ankle injury gave the bench boss and extra body... Continue reading

Joseph Garreffa doesn't have the answer. "It's frustrating," said the Kitchener Rangers winger, of the team's current struggles on the power play. "We've been moving the puck well.
