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.

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.

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

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
