Kahun scores SO winner as the Wolves down the Petes

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Dominik Kahun scored the only goal of the shootout as the Sudbury Wolves downed the Peterborough Petes 4-3 in Ontario Hockey League action on Saturday.

Nathan Pancel had two goals for the Wolves (20-16-7), who are 9-0-3 in their last 12 outings, and Matthew Campagna scored once.

Brandon Devlin, Jonatan Tanus and Steven Trojanovic replied for the Petes (12-24-7).

Pancel and Devlin traded power-play goals in the first period.

Peterborough appeared to have taken the lead in the second period when Devlin's slap shot from the point appeared to go in, however the on-ice officials waved off the goal.

With 2:29 to play in the period, Campagna got the puck alone in front of Peterborough's goal and ripped a wrist shot under the cross bar to give the Wolves a 2-1 lead after 40 minutes.

Tanus evened things up in the third period, then Trojanovic gave the Petes their first lead at 17:48 of the period.

It was short-lived, though, as Pancel tied it up 67 seconds later to force overtime.

Franky Palazzese made 35 saves for the win as Andrew D'Agostini turned away 30 shots in defeat.

Sudbury went 1 for 5 on the power play while Peterborough scored once on four chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
