Barclay Goodrow scores two goals as Battalion defeat Sudbury Wolves 4-2

BRAMPTON, Ont. - Barclay Goodrow scored a pair of goals and Brenden Miller tallied the eventual power-play winner late in the second period as the Brampton Battalion doubled the Sudbury Wolves 4-2 in Ontario Hockey League play Sunday afternoon.

The win snapped a four-game winless streak for the Troops.

“Huge win for us, especially when it’s against a division rival,” said Goodrow. “We have a pretty good rivalry with those guys.”

Ray Huether opened the scoring for Sudbury with 56 seconds remaining in the first period, taking a Nicholas Baptiste pass in the slot and beating Matej Machovsky with a quick shot.

Brampton tied things up just 34 seconds later when Nick Paul sent Goodrow in on a breakaway and slid a backhand shot five hole on Taylor Dupuis. Goodrow put the Battalion in front at 2:58 of the middle stanza, firing a snapshot past Dupuis as he streaked down the wing.

Sudbury tied it at the 7:36 mark when Brody Silk picked up his own rebound, pouncing on a loose puck in the crease. Miller put the homeside ahead for good with 2:00 to play in the second when his point shot got past Dupuis.

Nicholas Foglia added an insurance marker at 5:48 of the third. Dupuis finished with 33 saves, while Machovsky turned aside 22 of the 24 shots sent his way.

Sudbury was 0-for-3 on the power-play while the Battalion went 1-for-2.

Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
