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

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
