Goodrow scores twice as the Battalion beat the Storm 5-1

BRAMPTON, Ont. - Barclay Goodrow scored twice, including the winner, as the Brampton Battalion defeated the visiting Guelph Storm 5-1 on Sunday afternoon in Ontario Hockey League play.

Patrik Machac, Mathew Santos and Brendan Childerley also scored for the Battalion (8-8-5).

Andrey Pedan scored the lone goal for the Storm (12-8-1), who have dropped back-to-back contests.

Matej Machovsky made 40 saves for the win as Garret Sparks turned away 32 shots in a losing cause.

Brampton went 1-for-4 on the power play while Guelph failed to score on seven chances with the man advantage.

“We played a simple game today and didn’t make many mistakes,” said Goodrow. “We had some strong penalty killing.”

Guelph opened the scoring at 14:10 of the first period when Pedan fired a slap shot from the top of the face-off circle that eluded Machovsky.

Brampton tied the game at 8:17 of the second period when Machac lifted a shot over Sparks from close range. A brief video review was conducted to confirm if the puck had indeed crossed the goal line.

Goodrow put the homeside ahead on a breakaway as he slipped a backhand shot five hole on Sparks and Childerley made it a 3-1 game after 40 minutes of play.

Goodrow added his second of the afternoon in the final period while Santos rounded out the scoring with a power-play goal in the final minute of regulation.

Quote of the Day

It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy.  Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
