Three games, three wins.
An impressive road series for the Hounds who defeated the Ice Dogs, Otters and Sting concluded as the Wolves rolled into town Wednesday night.
The Hounds would continue their winning ways, doubling up on the Wolves 6-3
The Hounds enjoyed the three win stretch that began after their crushing loss to the Knights, 6-5 in overtime. Although, the Hounds have seen their fair share of wins. Since Nov 13th, the team has earned a 7-3-0-1 record.
The Wolves, who sit at the top of the Central Division, are no strangers to success either, riding a four game winning streak heading into Wednesday’s contest.
The match-up started sloppy, with neither team able to establish a solid possession game. MacKay would be the first to take advantage, and quickly, as he would fire a beautiful shot past the far side of Cole Purboo to open the scoring.
From then on out for the first twenty was all red and white. The Hounds posted three goals in total before the frame ended, outshooting the opposition 15 to 12. Billy Constantinou managed to earn himself an assist on all three goals.
Cole MacKay only needed a minute and ten seconds to score in the first, well double that for the second. Two minutes and twenty seconds into the frame he potted his second of the night.
While the shot lead would increase for the home squad to 30-20, the Wolves would net their first tally of the night from David Levin, but that would be the lone two goals of the frame, heading into the final period with a 4-1 lead for the Hounds.
Overager Jaden Peca would not let his team take their foot off the gas pedal, as he made sure the Hounds scored in the opening two and a half minutes each period. A minute and thirty three seconds for Alex Johnston to find Jaden Peca who would score a goal off of a finicky bounce. His 11th of the year would extend the lead to 5-1.
David Levin would be slashed on a short handed breakaway, and while Brkin stopped the initial break, Levin would tuck one five hole on the penalty shot.
Half way through the frame, Pytlik would head to the box on a hooking call, allowing Stratis to notch a powerplay marker and now making this a close game, 5-3 with time left.
Cole MacKay would continue his stellar performance, as he set up Rory Kerins for his 15th on the year, and this would make for the final score of the game, 6-3.
The Hounds continue their stretch of three games in four days as Owen Sound makes their one regular season appearance in the Sault Friday night.
