IceDogs Come Home with 4 Points, Finishing Road Trip with 7-4 Win in Sudbury
The IceDogs played their 2nd game in as many nights tonight in Sudbury. After a huge come from behind overtime win last night in North Bay, the 'Dogs were looking to end their roadtrip on a high against a Wolves team they've struggled against.
The IceDogs got down to business early in the 1st period as Ben Jones got the boys on the board less than three minutes into the game! Jones' goal was assisted by Johnny Corneil and Will Lochead! The first period featured many penalties, which led to a lot of 4 on 4 play. But, with less than 4 minutes to play in the period, Billy Constantinou made tonight a game he'll never forget! Constantinou scored his first OHL goal to double our lead over the Wolves! 5 seconds later, Johnny Corneil scored his 9th goal of the season to make it 3-0!
The 'Dogs came out flying in the 2nd period and it didn't take long to add to their lead! Kirill Maksimov walked into the zone and made some room for himself to score a beauty of a goal! Maksi scored his team leading 22nd goal of the season to extend our lead to 4. Shortly after, the Wolves got one goal back to cut our lead to three. With less than 2 minutes to be played in the second period, Danial Singer capitalized on the 'Dogs powerplay to regain the 4-goal lead! In the 3rd period, the Wolves scored to make it 5-2. With just over 7 minutes to play in the game, Akil Thomas scores a highlight reel goal to take a 6-2 lead! Seconds later, the Wolves score two goals to cut our lead to 2. The Wolves pulled their goalie with over 2 minutes to play, and Danial Singer capitalized to score his 2nd of the game!
The 'Dogs are coming home tonight with a big 7-4 and 4 points on the roadtrip!
