It was a busy Saturday for all general managers around the OHL with the priority selection taking place from early in the morning and lasting most of the day, but on the playoffs side of things, the Soo Greyhounds and Erie Otters were the lone game played on Saturday night.
After dropping a 3-2 overtime decision to the Erie Otters on Friday in game one of the OHL’s Western Conference semifinals, the Soo Greyhounds were hoping to even up the series at a game each in game two on Saturday night from the Erie Insurance Arena.
The Hounds, who have been giving the Otters a good battle this round, came up short again on Saturday night, as they dropped a 3-1 score to the Erie Otters.
Dylan Strome led the way offensively for the Otters with a pair of goals including an empty netter.
Nick Betz had the other goal for the Otters while Jordan Sambrook, Alex DeBrincat, Taylor Raddysh and Patrick Fellows all chipped in with an assist each.
Blake Speers had the only goal for the Hounds on the power play with assists going to Gustav Bouramman and Bobby MacIntyre.
Hounds goalie Brandon Halverson gave up two goals on twenty three shots for the loss while Otters net minder Devin Williams made fifteen saves for the win.
The Hounds, who only have one victory on home ice this postseason, will look to be victorious when they return to the Essar Centre on Monday, April 11th at 7:07 p.m.
