Coming off a successful weekend, the Sudbury Wolves slammed head first into the Barrie Colts on Tuesday night and came up wanting.

The Pack was coming off a successful weekend that saw them pick up back-to-back wins, defeating the Oshawa Generals at home 4-2, and the North Bay Battalion 6-4 on the road.

David Goyette continues to lead the Wolves offensively with 14 goals and 20 assists on the season and was named OHL Player of the Week on Jan. 17, during the Wolves Eastern Conference road swing.

Those highlights though screeched to a halt on Tuesday night at Sudbury Arena. The Pack were stampeded 9-1 on home ice by the Barrie Colts. The match was a rescheduled game from December.

Barrie opened the scoring eight minutes into the first to take an early lead. The Colts scored again in the final minute of the first to move up 2-0.

Less than a minute into the second, Barrie would score again to make it a 3-0 hockey game, followed four minutes later by another goal to make it a 4-0 game.

Around eight minutes into the second, Barrie went on to score three goals in less than two minutes to make it a 7-0 game for the Colts. The southern Ontario visitors would add yet another goal before the end of the second to take an 8-0 lead over Sudbury.

The Wolves would finally get on the scoreboard a couple minutes into the third when Nick Degrazia scored unassisted (his eighth of the season) to make it an 8-1 hockey game.

Barrie would add one more just past the halfway mark of the third period to cap off the match with a 9-1 score.

The Wolves are home for another six games now. The Pack faceoff against their Eastern Division rivals the Ottawa 67’s on Friday at 7:05 p.m. Then, the Wolves round out the weekend on Sunday afternoon by again taking on the Barrie Colts at 2:05 p.m.

Under the current provincial guidelines, spectators are not permitted at any of the games this week.

With pandemic restrictions set to loosen Jan. 31, it’s very possible fans will be able to watch the early February stretch of home games though. Feb. 4, the Pack welcomes the Kingston Frontenacs. Then, on Feb. 6 and Feb. 8, the Soo Greyhounds visit Sudbury Arena. The home stand ends Feb. 11 with a game against the Niagara IceDogs.

In OHL standings, the Wolves sit eighth in the Eastern Division and 17th overall.
