Belleville's Subban shuts out Colts in OHL game delayed by accident on 401

BELLEVILLE, Ont. - A late start didn't seem to hurt Malcolm Subban and the Belleville Bulls on Monday as they blanked the Barrie Colts 3-0 in an OHL game delayed two hours because of an accident on Highway 401.

The Colts were late arriving in Belleville due to the traffic backup on the highway.

Subban made 29 saves to earn his third shutout of the season.

Tyler Graovac, Joseph Cramarossa and Brendan Gaunce scored for Belleville (35-14-6).

Mathias Niederberger was solid in net for Barrie, making 27 saves in the loss for the Colts (36-18-3).

With the win, Belleville leapfrogs Barrie for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.

Leading 1-0 in the third, Cramarossa scored on a penalty shot followed by Guance's short-handed marker into an empty net.

Gaunce's goal came at the end of a lengthy Belleville penalty kill that included Barrie having a 6-on-3 advantage with Niederberger on the bench.

Both teams were 0-for-5 on the power play.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
