Sudbury Wolves forwarsd David Goyette picked up his seventh goal of the 2021-2022 season on Sunday against the Oshawa Generals.

The Sudbury Wolves finished a tough three-games-in-three-nights swing on Sunday with a loss to the Oshawa Generals.

It was a hard way to finish the swing, which started with a loss to the Mississauga Steelheads on Friday night at home and a loss to the Niagara IceDogs on Saturday night.

On Sunday, the team travelled to the Tribute Communities Centre to battle the Generals.

Oshawa opened the scoring at the 15-minute mark of the first period to take an early 1-0 lead. The Generals would draw blood again three minutes later to make it a 2-0 hockey game.

Oshawa would once again give their hometown fans something to cheer about at the 11-minute mark of the second, scoring their third of the game and making it a 3-0 hockey game.

Early in the third period, the Generals would score yet again. With a four-goal lead, Oshawa would keep the pressure on.

The Wolves finally got on the board 30 seconds later when David Goyette scored his seventh of the season (assisted by Chase Stillman and Kocha Delic). 

Now a 4-1 game for Oshawa, the Generals could coast to the end, but they managed to pick up their fifth goal of the game three minutes later.

The Wolves didn’t quit, despite being down 5-1. Unassisted, Jack Thompson scored his eighth of the season at the 15-minute mark, but it would be too little, too late for the Pack.

The game ended 5-2 for Oshawa.

The loss aside, Goyette has been in “fine form” the team said, scoring goals in three straight games and earning six points in seven games since the team’s return to action after marking his fourth point in his last three outings. 

Netminder Jonathan Lemaire turned aside 34 of the 39 shots fired his way.

The Pack is back in action Thursday, Jan. 13, as they travel to Peterborough to take on the Petes.

After the weekend, the Wolves have a record of 8-18-3 after 29 games, and are sitting last in the Eastern Conference. Overall, the Pack sits in last place in the OHL.
