Special teams can make or break a hockey game and for the Soo Greyhounds it meant a victory on Friday night.
A pair of power play goals, including the overtime winner from veteran forward Morgan Frost, along with a shorthanded marker lifted the Greyhounds to a 4-3 Ontario Hockey League win over the Kingston Frontenacs at the GFL Memorial Gardens.
Parked in the right faceoff circle, Frost converted a feed from Barrett Hayton 32 seconds into the extra period to give the Greyhounds the win.
“We know that we’ve been struggling a bit but at the same time we’ve been creating a lot,” Frost said. “We still have confidence in ourselves and we were definitely hungry to score.”
The Greyhounds finished the night 2-for-5 on the man advantage.
“It was nice to see special teams bail us out for a night,” said Greyhounds Coach John Dean. “The penalty kill was unbelievable, and the power play was unbelievable.”
“In the first period we got into penalty trouble and the guys that they have on their power play unit makes it tough for us,” said Kingston Coach Kurtis Foster. “They were clicking right away and got some great chances.”
