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.

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

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
