A short stretch in the second period turned into the difference.
The Soo Greyhounds scored three times in three minutes to end the second period as they beat the Mississauga Steelheads 6-4 in Ontario Hockey League action at the GFL Memorial Gardens on Saturday night.
Trailing 3-2, Ryan Roth pulled the Greyhounds even at 16:52 and Jaden Peca scored his first goal as a member of the Greyhounds to give the locals the lead 45 seconds later.
Sault product Cole MacKay added to the lead with 10.1 seconds to go in the period.
“We’re a pretty dangerous team when we want to be,” said Greyhounds Coach John Dean. “I don’t think we were playing a great game at the time and we decided to pour it on there. That’s what we’re capable of doing.
“We’re blessed with so much skill, we can take 12 or 13 minutes off and then put three in the back of the net,” Dean added, “but it’s not the way you draw it up.”
For the Steelheads, the short stretch at the end of the second period was tough for a team that kept the game close throughout.
