Sproul scores in OT, Murray makes 36 saves as Grehounds blank Attack to even series 2-2

SAULT STE. MARIE, Ont. - Ryan Sproul scored at 19:12 of overtime as the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds blanked the visiting Owen Sound Attack 1-0 on Wednesday in Ontario Hockey League playoff action.

Sproul's first goal of the post-season goal, which came by way of power play, evened the first-round matchup at two games each.

Sault Ste Marie's Matt Murray stopped 36 shots for the shutout and the game's first star while Owen Sound's Jordan Binnington turned away 41-of-42 shots in a losing cause.

The Greyhounds went 1 for 4 on the power play while the Attack failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.

Game 5 is scheduled for Friday when Owen Sound hosts Sault Ste. Marie at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
