The Peterborough Petes kept themselves in the thick of the Ontario Hockey League's playoff chase last night with a comeback 3-2 win over the visiting Sudbury Wolves.

The win lifted the Petes into a tie with Sudbury for the eighth and final post-season spot in the Eastern Conference. A loss would have left them four points behind.

Tony Romano broke a 2-2 tie with 6:46 to go in the third period after teammate Brett Theberge had pulled the Petes even early in the frame.

Ryan Spooner had the other Petes goal while John McFarland and Daniel Maggio replied for Sudbury.

At Barrie, Stefan Della Rovere tied it with 3:10 to play and Daniel Michalsky won it 4:01 into OT. Knights' John Tavares missed the game after aggravating a shoulder injury Friday night against Windsor.
