Broll, Staples lead the Greyhounds over the 67's

OTTAWA - David Broll had a goal and an assist as the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds downed the host Ottawa 67's 4-1 on Thursday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Dylan Staples also had a goal and an assist for the Greyhounds (20-17-2) while Mark Petaccio and Ryan Sproul each scored once.

Sault Ste Marie's head coach Sheldon Keefe, who had spent the past six seasons coaching in the Central Canada Hockey League with the Pembroke Lumber Kings in the Ottawa Valley, was pleased with how his team played in his return to the Ottawa area.

"It was nice that the team responded with an effort like that." Keefe said. "It meant a lot to me to come back and win with so many family and friends."

Tyler Graovac scored the lone goal for the 67's (11-26-3), who now sit one point behind the Peterborough Petes for last place in the East Division.

Matt Murray made 21 saves for the win as Clint Windsor, the much busier of the two goaltenders, stopped 47-of-51 shots in defeat.

Sault Ste. Marie went 1 for 4 on the power play while Ottawa failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

You've got to focus on playing good hockey. When we do that we give ourselves a chance to win games. Win games and then maybe we''ll have a chance at the end. You can't worry about something like (the division title) when we're not playing our best hockey down the stretch. We'll figure things out together the way we always do and get back on the right page.
