Subban perfect in Bulls 5-0 win over Wolves; Belleville advances to next round

SUDBURY, Ont. - Malcolm Subban made 27 saves in his second straight shutout as the Belleville Bulls completed the 4-0 sweep over the Sudbury Wolves with a 5-0 win on Thursday in the Ontario Hockey League playoffs.

Daniil Zharkov scored twice for the Bulls, who will face the Barrie Colts in the Eastern Conference Finals. Aaron Berisha, Austen Brassard and Tyler Graovac also had goals.

Frank Palazzese allowed five goals on 29 shots for the Wolves.

Zharkov opened the scoring for the Bulls at 11:45 in the first period as he beat Palazzese five-hole with a wrist shot.

Brassard tucked home a breakaway goal as Brendan Gaunce found him with a long pass through the neutral zone at 15:21 to make it 2-0.

Zharhov scored his second goal when he was left unmarked in the slot and beat a sprawled Palazzese at 16:36 in the second period.

Graovac deposited a rebound on a two-man advantage at 3:15 in the third period before Berisha added another on the power play at 3:34.

Belleville went 2 for 4 on the power play, while Sudbury wound up 0 for 3.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
