OWEN-SOUND, Ont. - Forward Daniel Milne scored in overtime to give the Owen Sound Attack a 2-1 victory over the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds Thursday in the opening game of their first round OHL Western Conference playoff.
Left-winger Michael Schumacher opened the scoring for the Greyhounds at 7:37 of the first period.
Centre Artur Gavrus tied it for Owen Sound at 19:08 of the first.
Both goaltenders had busy nights, with Matt Murray of the Greyhounds and Jordan Binnington of the Attack each making 36 saves.
Sault Ste. Marie was 0 for 5 on the power play, and Owen Sound was 0 for 4.
That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
