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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
