Vienneau makes 26 saves as the Wolves down the Greyhounds

SUDBURY, Ont. - Joel Vienneau made 26 saves as the host Sudbury Wolves claimed a 4-1 victory over the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Nicholas Baptiste, Charlie Dodero, Jacob Harris and Nathan Pancel supplied the offense for the Wolves (15-16-7) while Mathew Campagna picked up two assists and extended his point streak to 13 games.

Joshua Leivo also had a pair of assists for Sudbury, which pushed his point streak to eight games.

Ryan Sproul scored the lone goal for the Greyhounds (18-17-2), who had their winning streak halted at four games, and Matt Murray turned aside 36 shots in a losing cause.

Baptiste opened the scoring for the Wolves on the power play at 14:42 of the first period, but Sproul replied with a shot from the slot a minute later to tie the game.

Dodero made it 2-1 on the power play when he unloaded a blast from the point that beat Murray blocker side at 7:05 of the second period and Harris increased the lead after he banged in a loose puck in the crease at 11:00.

Pancel added a power-play goal at 18:30 of the third period after he backhanded the puck over a sprawling Murray.

Sudbury finished the game 3 for 7 on the power play while Sault Ste. Marie went 0 for 3.

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.
