The Sudbury Wolves return home to host the Oshawa Generals for Games #3 and #4 of the first round of the playoffs at the Sudbury Arena on Tuesday March 28th and Thursday March 30th at 7:00pm. The Wolves and Generals are tied at one win apiece in the series after the Wolves won 5-2 Friday and lost 5-1 Sunday in Oshawa.
Friday nights’ game 1 in Oshawa was a real test of the young Wolves who, for many, got their first taste of OHL playoff action. The team responded well, played disciplined hockey and as a unit for a full 60 minutes which lead to the solid road victory. Scorers scored, defenders defended and the goalie tended in a full team effort where all 3 stars were awarded to the Wolves. Sunday’s game was another solid start with the Wolves trailing the Generals by only a goal in a tight game midway through the second before Oshawa capitalized on a few moments of inexperience by the wolves to build a 3-0 lead before the end of the 2nd period. The Wolves found a way to break the shutout in the 3rd and set the tone in the 3rd outshooting the Generals 21-4. Tuesday’s match should prove to be a heated battle with both teams looking to take the series lead.
