BELLEVILLE, Ont. - A three-goal first-period deficit was too much to overcome as the Sudbury Wolves were defeated by the host Belleville Bulls 4-1 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League playoff action.

Nathan Pancel scored early in the third for the Wolves, who have been outscored in the series 10-4.

Malcolm Subban stopped 17 shots for the win as Franky Palazzese made 24 saves in defeat.

Belleville went 1 for 2 on the power play while Sudbury failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Game 3 is scheduled for Tuesday when the Wolves host the Bulls at Sudbury Community Arena.
