Dupuis makes 29 saves as the Wolves down the Otters

SUDBURY, Ont. - Taylor Dupuis stopped 29 shots as the Sudbury Wolves edged the visiting Erie Otters 2-1 on Sunday afternoon in Ontario Hockey League play.

Dominik Kubalik and Dominik Kahun scored for the Wolves (11-15-4), who won for the first time in three outings.

Connor McDavid had the lone goal for the Otters (7-17-5), who are now winless in six games.

Oscar Dansk stopped 30-of-32 shots in the loss.

McDavid opened the scoring at 5:13 of the second period when he received a pass in the slot from Connor Brown and fooled Dupuis with a forehand-to-backhand deke.

Kubalik replied for Sudbury when he unloaded a shot from in front of the net that beat Dansk glove side at 12:38.

Kahun gave the Wolves the lead on the power play 3:19 into the third period after he skated through the right face-off circle and placed a wrist shot into the top-left corner.

Sudbury went 1 for 4 on the power play, while Erie finished 0 for 2.

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.
