Battalion gets revenge on Wolves for shoot-out loss

Coming off a loss on Friday night, North Bay slams the visiting Pack 4-0

The Sudbury Wolves took a bit of a pounding on Sunday when they paid a visit to the North Bay Battalion.

North Bay likely came looking for payback, after falling 3-2 to Sudbury in a shoot-out on Friday night at Sudbury Arena.

And revenge is what the Battalion got, slamming the Wolves 4-0 at Memorial Gardens in North Bay.

Matvey Petrov, fresh off signing a contract with the Edmonton Oilers, potted the first goal almost 10 minutes into the first. Midway through the second, Kyle Jackson doubled the lead to 2-0.

Near the end of the middle frame, some rough stuff occurred as the Battalion’s Alexander Lukin dropped the gloves with Quentin Musty of the Wolves. Shortly after, Sudbury’s Dylan Robinson picked up an instigator penalty and five-minute major for trying to fight Nic Sima, who wanted nothing to do with the rough stuff.

On the ensuing seven-minute (yes, you read that right) powerplay, Ty Nelson scored two goals to put the Troops up 4-0.

With 16 games under their belt, the Wolves have a record of 6-9-1 and are sitting in eighth place in the Eastern Conference and 15th overall. 

The Pack is back in action at home on Friday night against the Ottawa 67s. Game time is 7:05 p.m. The team then heads out for a road swing on the weekend, taking on the Hamilton Bulldogs on Saturday evening at the FirstOntario Centre (puck drops at 7 p.m.). They then head to Mississauga to take on the Steelheads on Sunday afternoon at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre. Game time is 2 p.m.
