BARRIE, Ont. - Joel Vienneau made 54 saves as the Sudbury Wolves beat the Barrie Colts 4-1 in Ontario Hockey League action Monday night.

Vienneau stopped the first 54 attempts he faced before the Colts scored with 1:17 left in regulation to break the shutout.

Jacob Harris had a pair of goals for Sudbury (16-16-7), which has now picked up points in eight straight contests.

Josh Leivo and Mathew Campagna had the other goals for the Wolves. Campagna, who also recorded an assist in the victory, is now riding a 14-game point streak.

Zach Hall had the lone goal for the Colts (24-11-1), who lost their second game in a row without Mark Scheifele and Anthony Camara. Both are playing for Canada at the world junior hockey championship.

Both teams were unable to strike on the man advantage. The Colts went 0 for 6 on the power play, while Sudbury finished the night at 0 for 1.

Barrie's Mathias Niederberger turned aside 35 shots in defeat.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
