Wolves dominate in IceDogs in 13-2 blowout

Pack went five-for-six on the power play and scored six goals in the final frame
Sudbury Wolves forward Quentin Musty picked up a goal and six assists in the Pack's 13-2 trouncing of the Niagara IceDogs.

The Niagara IceDogs went back down south with their tail between their legs after the Sudbury Wolves skated to a 13-2 victory on Sunday afternoon.

The impressive final score came as a result of some particularly strong offence from the Pack that saw them outshoot Niagara 47 to 30, dominate on the power play (going five-for-six to Niagara’s one-for-three) and dominate on faceoffs (winning 40 to the IceDogs’ 30.

Wolves forwards Quentin Musty and David Goyette put up some impressive stats during the game, as well, with Musty earning one goal and six assists while Goyette picked up two goals and three assists. Pack netminder Joe Ranger made 33 saves.

The big win improves Sudbury’s record to 8-13-3-0, good enough for eighth place in the OHL’s Eastern Conference and 18th overall.

It should come as no surprise that the Wolves opened the scoring on this one. Once the floodgates opened, it was all Niagara could do to contain it. 

At 4:52 of the first, Quentin Musty opened the scoring (assists, David Goyette and Evan Konyen) to make it a 1-0 Wolves game.

Less than two minutes later, Devin Mauro scored his second of the season (assists, Matthew Mania and Alex Pharand) and the Wolves were up 2-0.

Less than three minutes later, the Wolves would do it again, and on the power play. This time it was Goyette earning the marker (assists, Musty and Mania) and the Pack had a three-goal lead.

Moving into the second frame, Dylan Robinson scored for Sudbury at 9:11 (assists, Musty and Konyen) and the Wolves were up 4-0. Ninety seconds later and on the power play, the Wolves would do it again, with Pharand earning his 12th of the year (assists, Goyette and Musty) to make it 5-0.

The IceDogs would finally get on the board at 15:35 of the second period, with Declan Waddick picking up a goal (assist, Jacob Leblanc) to make it 5-1.

Twenty-three seconds later, though, the Wolves would score again with Nick DeGrazia picking up his ninth of the season (assists, Ethan Larmand and Jakub Chromiak) to make it 6-1.

A couple of minutes later, the Wolves would do it again, this time on the power play. Nathan Villeneuve picked up his third goal of the season (assists, Musty and Goyette) and it was a 7-1 Wolves game.

A minute into the third period and again on the power play, the Pack’s Evan Konyen got on the board with his eighth of the season (assists, Larmand and Landon McCallum) and the Wolves were up 8-1.

At 7:19 of the third, the IceDogs would score their second and final goal of the game, thanks to Gerard Keane (assists, Pano Fimis and Nolan Dann) to make it 8-2.

The Wolves weren’t done yet, though, and would score five more times before the third period, and the game, ended.

At 8:08, Robinson would score again for Sudbury (assists, DeGrazia and Mauro) to make it 9-2. Less than a minute later, Larmand would get on the board with his fourth of the season (assists, Mania and DeGrazia) and the Wolves were up 10-2.

At 12:00 of the third, Jacob Holmes scored his second of the season (assists, McCallum and DeGrazia) to make it an 11-2 Wolves’ game. 

At 14:38 Chromiak would earn his second of the season, too (assists, DeGrazia and Musty) and the Wolves had a 10-goal lead.

The 13th and final goal of the game was scored by Goyette, his 17th of the season, with assists going to Musty and Marc Boudreau and the game ended 13-2.

The Pack is back in action at home on Friday, Dec. 9 against the Saginaw Spirit. After that, the team heads out on a road trip for two games against the Barrie Colts, on Dec. 10 and Dec. 13.
