Wolves Prepare for Post Season Dance with Weekend Progress

The Sudbury Wolves claimed their first play-off berth since 2014 on St. Patrick’s day, Friday night, when they beat the North Bay Battalion 5-2 at the Sudbury Arena.  The win claimed 8th spot in the Eastern Conference, as the lowest possible rank, and with 2 games remaining, and a shot at the 6th seed.

After the win, the Wolves travelled down to St. Catharine’s Friday night in preparation to take on the Niagara IceDogs Saturday night where another play-off position was on the line.  The IceDogs were looking to eliminate the Battalion with a single point.  They were unable to overcome a great start by the Wolves, led by 2 first period goals by Macauley Carson and eventually fell 4-3 in regulation.

Sunday afternoon featured some score board watching of a trio of matinees for the Wolves as the IceDogs traveled to Mississauga to take on the Steelheads and lost a 6-1 decision, the Battalion played host to the Kingston Frontenacs and dropped that one 5-4 to miss the play-offs for the first time in franchise history, and the Hamilton Bulldogs visited the Ottawa 67s beating them in regulation 3-1.

With the end of the regular season here and only the Wolves and Steelheads makeup game left to play Tuesday March 21st, the Wolves have the chance to secure 6th seed with a win over the Steelheads to play the Oshawa Generals in the first round.  One point or worse Tuesday in Mississauga would mean that the team would finish 7th, one point back of the 67s, and will open the post season in Mississauga Friday night.

The Wolves and the OHL have confirmed that Games 3 and 4 of their first round Play-off matchup against either the Steelheads or the Generals will be played at home on Tuesday and Thursday, March 28th and 30th, puck drop for both games will be 7pm.  Season ticket holders, and play-off ticket purchasers will note that these games are called Home Game 1 and 2 in their packages.

Wolves Play-off Home game tickets go on sale at 11am, Monday March 20th at the Sudbury Arena Box office and are available online at greatersudbury.ca/tickets.  Avoid the play-off ticket line-ups and come down early and claim the edge of your play-off seat!

The Wolves last regular season game will be held in Mississauga when they travel to the Hershey Centre Tuesday March 21st  for a key divisional match-up with the Steelheads at 7pm in a make-up game.  Listen to the live play-by-play on www.mixlr.com/sudburywolves.
