OHL Roundup: Vienneau helps Wolves rebound with 2-0 shutout of Battalion

Joel Vienneau helped the Sudbury Wolves step up on Sunday after a disappointing loss Saturday night.

Vienneau made 34 saves for a shutout as Sudbury blanked the Brampton Battalion 2-0 in Ontario Hockey League action.

Sudbury's win came less than 24 hours after letting a late third-period 5-1 lead slip away to the Niagara IceDogs, falling 6-5 in a shootout.

"Definitely a huge win for us after what happened last night," said Brody Silk, who scored a power-play goal for the Wolves on Sunday. "Guys are feeling pretty good."

Nicholas Baptiste also scored with the man advantage for Sudbury (10-14-3).

Matej Machovsky stopped 27 of 29 shots for Brampton (12-10-5).

Elsewhere in the OHL it was: Belleville 3 Ottawa 0; Owen Sound 6 Mississauga 1; Oshawa 3 Niagara 1 and Kingston 4 Windsor 3.

At Brampton, Ont., the Wolves got on the board 6:14 into the first period when Silk redirected Charlie Dodero's point shot past Machovsky.

The visitors added to their lead at the 1:33 mark of the second when Baptiste poked in a rebound while at the side of the net.

Brandon Robinson almost brought the home side to within one minutes later but his wristshot from the left wing face-off circle caught the crossbar.

Sudbury went 2-for-5 on the power play while Brampton failed to capitalize on nine opportunities with the man advantage.

Bulls 3 67's 0

At Belleville, Ont., Malcolm Subban made 23 saves for the Bulls (14-8-3) as they picked up a shutout victory over Ottawa (7-18-2). Subban's shutout was the second of the year for the Boston Bruins' first-round draft pick.

Attack 6 Steelheads 1

At Mississauga, Ont., Kyle Hope scored a pair of goals and Brandon Hope made 32 saves to lead Owen Sound (18-5-3) a victory over the Steelheads (17-8-1)

---

Generals 3 IceDogs 1

At Oshawa, Ont., captain Boone Jenner scored twice and assisted on another as the Generals (14-10-3) defeated Niagara (17-8-2).

Frontenacs 4 Spitfires 3

At Windsor, Ont., Billy Jenkins scored twice and Mike Morrison made 40 saves as Kingston (14-11-0) edged the Spitfires (10-11-5),

Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version had the records for Brampton and Sudbury reversed, and had Brampton going 0-7 on the power play instead of 0-9.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
