Blake Clarke snaps 2-2 tie in third period as Battalion beats Wolves 4-2

SUDBURY, Ont. - With fans in attendance from North Bay, the visiting Brampton Battalion gave them something to smile about as they beat the Sudbury Wolves 4-2 in Ontario Hockey League play Wednesday.

Mike Amadio, Barclay Goodrow, Blake Clarke and Matt MacLeod scored for the Battalion (9-8-3-2). Joshua Leivo and Nathan Pancel replied for the Wolves (8-12-0-2).

Matej Machovsky turned aside 29 shots for Brampton, while Joel Vienneau made 34 saves for Sudbury.

Leivo opened the scoring for the Wolves at 1:34 in the first period when his wrist shot deflected off a defenceman's stick and over Machovsky's glove.

Amadio tied the game on the power play at 1:46 of the second period when he capitalized on a rebound in front of the net and beat Vienneau with a backhand shot. Goodrow made it 2-1 Brampton on a breakaway at 10:18.

Pancel tied the game for the Wolves on the power play at 17:33 of the second period.

Clarke scored the winner at 8:36 of the third period after the puck hit his skate and went between Vienneau's pads. MacLeod increased the lead at 14:02 after he unloaded a wrist shot from the slot that beat Vienneau glove side.

Sudbury went 1-for-3 on the power play, while Brampton wound up 1-for-4.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
