Colts goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood made 24 saves for the win, while Owen Sound's Brandon Hope turned aside 32 shots in the loss.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
