Machovsky makes 25 saves as the Battalion edge the Wolves 2-1 in SO

SUDBURY, Ont. - Francis Menard and Nick Paul both scored in the shootout as the Brampton Battalion edged the host Sudbury Wolves 4-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Barclay Goodrow scored in regulation for the Battalion (24-19-9) while Matej Machovsky stopped 25-of-26 shots for the win.

Mathew Campagna scored for the Wolves (24-18-10), who have dropped back-to-back contests, and Franky Palazzese made 35 saves in a losing cause.

Campagna opened the scoring for Sudbury 6:42 into the first period before Goodrow responded with a power-play goal at 14:52 of the second.

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

The Wolves currently sit fourth in the Eastern Conference, one point ahead of the Battalion.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
