GREYHOUNDS CONTINUE TO ROLL
by Brad Coccimiglio (Sootoday.com)
When you’ve won 12-straight games and 21 of 26 to start the season, not all of them are necessarily going to be pretty.
For the Soo Greyhounds, that was the case on Thursday night.
A pair of goals in the third period were the difference as the Greyhounds opened up a three-game Ontario Hockey League road trip with a 7-5 victory over the Peterborough Petes at the Peterborough Memorial Centre.
Morgan Frost scored the game-winner with just under six minutes to go in regulation time and Barrett Hayton sealed the win with an empty net goal with 1:04 to go in a game that the Greyhounds will happily take the two points from.
“At the end of the day, it’s two points on the road,” said Greyhounds Coach Drew Bannister. “And it’s two points against a good hockey team.”
“We were pretty sloppy defensively but anytime you’re this hot, you find ways to win games,” said Greyhounds defenceman Conor Timmins, who scored a pair of goals.
Frost had a goal and three assists for the Greyhounds, who have scored 23 goals in their last three games and 65 goals during the winning streak.
“Our offence is definitely clicking and that’s nice to see,” Frost said.
Jack Kopacka chipped in with a goal and two assists while Ryan Roth also scored a pair of goals each.
