North York scored two goals in five seconds in the third period but it was not enough as the Rangers fell 6-4 to the Oakville Blades on Sunday.
Ted Hunt led the way offensively for the Rangers with three points, almost sparking a third-period comeback with the club down by three with under two minutes remaining in regulation.
Discipline evaded North York all night, with the club offering the South Division leading Blades 11 power plays. Oakville capitalized on two of them, both coming in the first period.
Gianluca Baggetta made 31 saves in the loss, while Brendan McGlynn responded with 27 for his 10th victory of the campaign.
Michael Morgan also added a goal and an assist on the evening, while veteran defenceman Tanner Shaw paced the Blades with three points of his own.
North York returns to action on Dec. 28 when it hosts the Toronto Jr. Canadians at the Herb Carnegie Centennial Arena. Puck drops in North York at 3 p.m.
