Malcolm Subban stops 35 shots as Bulls edge Storm 2-1 in shootout

BELLEVILLE, Ont. - Malcolm Subban made 35 saves as the Belleville Bulls recorded a 2-1 shootout win over the Guelph Storm in Ontario Hockey League action on Wednesday.

Brendan Gaunce opened the scoring for Belleville (11-6-3-0) on the power play at 15:57 of the first period.

The Vancouver Canucks' first-round selection picked up a shot off the end board and floated the puck over a sprawling Garrett Sparks. The goal came in Gaunce's first game back after missing eight with a separated shoulder.

Guelph answered back with a power play marker of their own with Andrey Pedan converting on a tic-tac-toe play to beat Subban over the glove at 10:22 of the second period.

Sparks made 40 saves for the Storm (12-8-0-2).

Both sides had ample opportunities on the power play, with the Bulls going 1-for-9, and the Storm 1-for-7.

Brock McGinn scored Guelph's only shootout goal while Joseph Cramarossa and Jordan Subban converted for Belleville.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
