After sending the Peterborough Petes packing on Friday night, the Sudbury Wolves set their rods to reel in the Mississauga Steelheads on Sunday afternoon.

And reel them in they did, sending the Steelheads back down south smarting from a big 7-0 loss.

Wolves netminder Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen earned the shut-out and the first star of the game after stopping 32 shots. Quinton Byfield and Blake Murray picked up the other game stars.

The Wolves opened the scoring int he first period on markers from Owen Gilhula and Byfield. Gilhula went top shelf, glove side on Mississauga's Jacob Ingham to give the Pack an early 1-0 lead. Gilhula followed that up by setting up Byfield for a one-timer from the slot. The Wolves were up 2-0 after 2- minutes.

Five minutes into the second, Drake Pilon scored on the power play to extend the Wolves' lead to 3-0. Not five minutes later, David Levin followed suit, tallying another for the Wolves.

At one in the slot, the third period saw Blake Murray notch two goals giving the Pack a 6-0 lead. Owen Robinson scored his second of the season before the period ended to give the Wolves a big 7-0 win.
