SAULT STE. MARIE-
It was a result the team likely needed.
The Soo Greyhounds scored eight unanswered goals en route to a 10-1 Ontario Hockey League win over the Niagara IceDogs at the GFL Memorial Gardens on Saturday night.
The win came on the heels of a disappointing effort on Friday night at home against the Guelph Storm.
“To respond the way we did today and did what we were supposed to do, it’s a good sign,” said Greyhounds coach John Dean.
Dean said the response to Friday’s loss was the biggest positive in Saturday’s victory.
“The truth is, today’s a scary game as a coach,” Dean said. “The fact that we laid such an egg yesterday, you’re nervous to see how you’re going to respond the next day and we responded exceptionally well.
“If we come out here tonight and don’t play a good game, then you start to question yourself and the guys start to question each other,” Dean added.
Rookie forward Tanner Dickinson had a big night for the Greyhounds with a goal and three assists.
“The way he controlled the puck was exceptional,” Dean said of the free agent rookie forward. “The big thing for me is how he commanded the puck on the power play. We’ve been asking him to really take control of the puck on the power play and he did a really good job of that tonight.”
