Wolves salvage a point on the road in Windsor
2019-01-04
by Randy Pascal

In the absence of World Juniors standout goaltender Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen, the Sudbury Wolves could look at a 5-4 overtime loss to the Windsor Spitfires as a step in the right direction.

The effort wasn't enough to halt a losing skid that has now reached five games, but it did mark the first time since their 5-2 win over the Kitchener Rangers back on December 14th that the local juniors have secured at least one point in a game.

The contest was the epitome of a back and forth affair, the home team opening and closing the scoring in Windsor, and the Wolves countering every Spitfire goal, but for the last.

Will Cuylle solved Sudbury starter Jake McGrath for his 14th, 15th and 16th goals of the year for the winners, with Tyler Angle and Daniel D'Amico capping things off, the latter netting the game-winner 76 seconds into period number four.

Countering for the Wolves were Darian Pilon (9th), Nolan Hutcheson (13th), Cole Candella (6th) and Quinton Byfield (15th), with the #1 overall selection in the 2018 OHL Entry Draft earning second star accolades for his efforts in the first of a three game southwestern weekend road swing.

Sudbury outshot Windsor 25-22, with Kari Piiroinen earning the win between the pipes for the Spits. The O/T loss leaves the Wolves five points back of the Niagara Ice Dogs for first place in the Central Division, with both teams sitting at 36 games played.

The Mississauga Steelheads are five points back of the Wolves, with the Oshawa Generals just a single point up on Cory Stillman's crew, ranking third overall when it comes to the Eastern Conference standings.

With a record of 21-12-2-1, the Wolves close off their trek with match-ups against the Flint Firebirds (5-32-2-0) on Saturday and the Saginaw Spirit (22-11-2-2) on Sunday, tackling one more road game Thursday night against the Barrie Colts (17-19-1-0), before returning home to host the Steelheads (18-15-3-1) next Friday night.
