Despite heavy and dominating offence that saw the Sudbury Wolves out-shoot the visiting Kitchener Frontenacs 51-18, the Pack fell 6-2 thanks to the visitors' more accurate shooting.
Sudbury’s offence was all over Kingston during the Nov. 21 match at Sudbury Arena, not only out-shooting them in every period, but also dominating the faceoff, winning 50 to Kingston’s 20.
The loss drops Sudbury’s record to 6-10-2-0, good for 14 points. The Pack sits eighth in the OHL’s Eastern Conference and 18th overall.
Meanwhile, Kingston improved its record to 8-11-0-0, which is good enough for fifth place in the Eastern Conference and 10th overall.
Kingston scored its first of three opening-frame goals at 2:43 when Quinton Burns fed Vann Williamson to give the Frontenacs a 1-0 lead.
They scored their second of the period at 15:59 thanks to Francesco Arcuri (assists Linus Hemström and Maddox Callens) and their third 46 seconds later off the stick of Gabriel Frasca (assist, Arcuri) to make it a 3-0 Kingston game.
The Wolves would get on the board at 9:48 of the second period off the stick of Alex Assadourian (assists Jacob Holmes and Evan Konyen) to make it 3-1.
The Frontenacs were quick to get one back, though, and Arcuri scored his second of the game less than a minute later (assists Burns and Hemström) to make it a 4-1 Kingston game.
Around seven minutes later, the Frontenacs would make it a 5-1 game thanks to Owen Outwater (assists Josh Currie, Williamson).
At this point, Sudbury swapped Joe Ranger out of the net for Nate Krawchuk.
Sudbury would spend the next 15 minutes peppering the Kingston net with shots, but to no avail, and at 13:01 of the third, the Frontenacs would strike again (Maddox Collins, assists Paul Ludwinski and Christopher Thibodeau) and extend their lead to 6-1.
Sudbury would score its second of the game with less than a minute to go in the match when Nick DeGrazia and Quentin Musty would team up to feed David Goyette who scored his 12th of the season, and the game ended 6-2 for Kingston.
The Pack heads out on a three-game road trip this week, taking on the Peterborough Petes on Thursday, the Frontenacs on Friday and then travelling to Ottawa battle the 67s on Sunday.
