The final road game of the Ontario Hockey League regular season made Sunday a record-setting day for the Soo Greyhounds.
The Greyhounds battled back to force overtime before dropping a 6-5 shootout decision to the Owen Sound Attack Sunday afternoon at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre in Owen Sound.
With the single point, the Greyhounds set a new franchise record for points in a season with 111 heading into the final three games of the regular season.
Getting the point wasn’t easy as the Attack led 3-0 early in the second period and would hold a 5-2 advantage in the early stages of the third period before the Greyhounds battled back.
“The comeback was huge for us,” said Greyhounds forward Boris Katchouk. “That shows that we can deal with adversity.”
“It was a great game in that we were able to fight our way back into it,” said Greyhounds Coach Drew Bannister. “It’s a really tough rink to play in.”
The Greyhounds scored three times in 66 seconds in the third period, including goals on both ends of a 5-on-3 man advantage to tie the game at five.
“That was important,” Bannister said of the power play having some success. “The power play has been a little bit off as of late. That was a good game for us to ramp it up for the playoffs. It’s important that we get whether it’s luck or opportunity and making sure that we cash in on those opportunities.”
Defencemen Conor Timmins and Rasmus Sandin scored 30 seconds apart on the power play to cut the lead to one before Morgan Frost tied the game with 12:54 to go in regulation time to tie the game.
