Bulls take 2-0 series lead

BELLEVILLE, Ont. - A three-goal first-period deficit was too much to overcome as the Sudbury Wolves were defeated by the host Belleville Bulls 4-1 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League playoff action.

Jordan Subban, Stephen Silas and Austen Brassard made it 3-0 in the first period for the Bulls, who have a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven second-round matchup, while Joseph Cramarossa added a fourth goal into an empty net late in the third.

Nathan Pancel scored early in the third for the Wolves, who have been outscored in the series 10-4.

Malcolm Subban stopped 17 shots for the win as Franky Palazzese made 24 saves in defeat.

Belleville went 1 for 2 on the power play while Sudbury failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Game 3 is scheduled for Tuesday when the Wolves host the Bulls at Sudbury Community Arena.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
