Campagna's OT goal on a broken play leads Wolves past Greyhounds, 2-1

SUDBURY, Ont. - Matthew Campagna scored in overtime on a broken play as the Sudbury Wolves beat the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 2-1 in Ontario Hockey League action Tuesday.

Campagna's pass attempt deflected off Greyhound defender Colin Miller's skate and past goaltender Jack Campbell 44 seconds into overtime.

Andrey Kuchin also scored for Sudbury (13-10-1).

Carson Dubchak replied for Sault Ste. Marie (14-11-2).

Joel Vienneau stopped 22 shots for Sudbury, while Campbell made 18 saves.

The Wolves had the best chance in the first period on a rebound in front of the net, but Campbell, a first-round pick of the Dallas Stars, sprawled and robbed Kristoff Kontos with his glove.

The game remained scoreless in the second period as both teams limited offensive opportunities. The best chance came from the Wolves after Joshua Leivo rang a shot off the post on a breakaway.

Kuchin opened the scoring for the Wolves in the third period at 12:34 after Kontos found him alone in front of the net.

The Greyhounds replied with a power-play goal at 15:34 as Dubchak crashed the net and buried the puck past a sprawled Vienneau.

Sudbury went 0-for-3 on the power play, while Sault Ste. Marie was 1-for-8.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
