Dominik Kubalik scored the lone goal for the Wolves (24-18-10), who lost in regulation for the first time in eight outings.

Matej Machovsky stopped 16-of-17 for the win as Franky Palazzese made 24 saves in a losing cause.

McIvor opened the scoring at 13:44 of the first period to make it 1-0 Battalion after 20 minutes of play.

Brampton went 1 for 5 on the power play while Sudbury failed to score on six chances with the man advantage.
