MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Nathan Pancel scored the winning goal to lead the Sudbury Wolves to a 3-1 victory over the host Mississauga Steelheads on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Stuart Percy had the lone goal for the Steelheads (18-12-3).

Percy opened the scoring for the Steelheads with a point shot that deflected off a Sudbury defender midway through the second period, but the lead didn't last long as Silk jammed a rebound past Martin with 3:20 left in the period to tie the game 1-1.

Pancel collected the rebound off of Campagna's point shot 1:06 later to make it 2-1 Sudbury and Leivo capped off the game with an empty-net goal in the final minute of the third period.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
