OHL CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES SHIFTS TO HAMILTON TIED 1-1

The Ontario Hockey League Championship Series heads to Hamilton with the Bulldogs and Sault Ste. Marie tied 1-1 after a Greyhounds 4-2 win in Game 2 Saturday night.

The Bulldogs came out firing early in the 1st period, but it was the Greyhounds who opened the scoring on a power-play at 4:19. Hamilton’s power-play broke out of a 0-15 slump when Mackenzie Entwistle (8) tied the game late at 19:35.

The Soo went out to a 3-1 lead in the 2nd period with a power-play goal at 8:20 followed by one at even strength at 11:18.

Hamilton pressed in the 3rd period and cut the deficit to 3-2 at 12:46 when Brandon Saigeon (14) scored on a 4-on-3 advantage, his OHL leading 8th power-play goal of the playoffs. With Kaden Fulcher on the bench, the Bulldogs got another power-play opportunity late after the Greyhounds were called for a rare face-off infraction, only to see the Soo score into the empty net to make the final 4-2.

Hamilton out-shot Sault Ste. Marie 38-34.

Greyhound goal scorers were Barrett Hayton (7), Morgan Frost (8, 9) and Jack Kopacka (10).
