Coming off a home opener Friday that saw the Sudbury Wolves fall by one goal (6-5) to the Barrie Colts, the Pack hit the road to take on Mississauga on Sunday and they gave the Steelheads a bit of lesson in hockey at the same time, winning the game 6-2.

The game didn't look like it was going to be a blowout. The first period was nearly scoreless until just past the 17-minute mark when Marc Boudreau took a pass from Matthew Mania and put the Wolves up 1-0.

The Wolves would score again around six minutes into the second when Landon McCallum fired a pass to Ethan Larmand who found the back of the net and made it a 2-0 Sudbury game.

Six minutes later, Mississauga would get on the scoreboard when Luca Del Bel Belluz and Jake Uberti would set up Charlie Callaghan who beat Wolves netminder Joe Ranger to make it a 2-1 Wolves game.

As the second was drawing to a close, Sudbury would score again to extend their lead. Just past 18 minutes and short-handed, David Goyette would feed a pass to Kocha Delic, who beat Ryerson Leenders to make it a 3-1 game.

Then, less than a minute into the third period, Delic and Evan Konyen would feed Goyette who would notch an insurance goal and make it a 4-1 game.

The game wasn't over yet though. Quentin Musty would make it a 5-1 game two minutes later with help from Nick DeGrazia and Landon McCallum. Then, about halfway through the period, Sudbury would score again when Delic and Konyen would team up to feed Mania to make it a 6-1 game.

Mississauga would make it a 6-2 game at the 18-minute mark when Parker Von Richter and Valdemar William Hull would set up Chas Sharpe on the power play, but it was too little, too late at that point and the game ended 6-2 for Sudbury.

Sudbury heads out on a three-game road swing now. They visit the Windsor Spitfires on Thursday, travel to Flint to take on the Firebirds on Saturday, then head over to Saginaw for a Sunday match against the Spirit.

With a record of 1-1, the Pack is sitting fifth in the OHL's Eastern Conference, second in the Central Division and seventh overall.
