A game four loss to the Petes ends the Wolves season


No, that wasn't the final score of game four of the OHL first round series between the Peternorough Petes and the Sudbury Wolves.

The scoreboard would actually read 4-2 in favour of the visiting Petes, allowing Peterborough to complete a four game sweep of the Wolves.

The initial scoreline in this story (10-2) actually reflected the disparity of power plays between the two sides as the Sudbury propensity for needless and undisciplined penalties was front and centre, yet again.

Owen Beck opened the scoring less than five minutes in with the Petes enjoying a two-man advantage but Landon McCallum actually neutralized that effort with a short-handed goal 63 seconds later.

The first half of the middle stanze featured a pair of power play markers, with Tommy Purdeller and Landon McCallum trading tallies, the teams tied at 2-2 at this point.

The tide would turn in a two minute span between 12:03 and 13:50 as strikes from J.R. Avon and Tucker Robertson chased Sudbury starter Kevyn Brassard, the overager deservign a better fate after playing very well for the better part of the previous three games.

From there, the experience of the Peterborough side was evident, limiting Sudbury chances until the very last few minutes of the contest. Of course, the Wolves did little to help their cause, assessed five minor penalties in the third period while the Petes paid not a single visit to the sin-bin in the final twenty minutes of play.

With the end of the series comes the final OHL games for Kevyn Brassard as well as defenceman Dylan Robinson and forward Nick DeGrazia, the speedster from Thunder Bay whose services were sorely missed due to a broken wrist.
