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.
