WEEKEND PREVIEW: Petes vs. Wolves & Greyhounds
If you weren’t at Thursday night’s East Division matchup against the Bulldogs, you missed a thrilling 3-2 overtime victory. Captain Logan DeNoble netted two goals, including the OT game winner, to lift the Petes over the surging Steel Town club.
The men in maroon now head north, with their most complete lineup in weeks and momentum in their back pocket, to go to war with the Wolves on Friday night at 7:05pm. The game is the second between the teams this season, with the Petes taking an 8-3 win on home ice on October 14.
Sudbury sits tenth in the Eastern Conference, and fifth in the Central Division, holding a 7-15-4-0 record through their first 26 games. They’re led by Russian winger and Minnesota Wild prospect Dmitry Sokolov, who has registered 13 goals, 15 assists, and 28 points in 24 games for the Wolves.
Peterborough has won their last four, and last five of six, games in Sudbury, and are 13-3-0-1 against the Wolves over the last five seasons.
After the Petes ended a 3-game losing skid Thursday night, Sudbury will be looking to accomplish the same feat, having dropped a game to the North Bay Battalion sandwiched by two losses to the Soo Greyhounds.
Peterborough will face those same Greyhounds on Saturday night at 7:07pm. The Hounds are the hottest club in the league, riding a nine game win streak into their Friday night matchup with the Kitchener Rangers.
The Soo have climbed to third in the Western Conference standings, and are second in the West Division. They’re only one point out of first place in their division, conference, and the OHL. Boris Katchouk is the team’s leading goal and point scorer, with 20 goals, 14 assists, 34 points and a notable +21 plus/minus rating in 23 games.
The maroon and white are 2-2-0-1 in Sault Ste. Marie and 3-5-0-2 overall through their last ten matchups with the Northern Ontario team. Saturday’s game will be the home club’s annual Teddy Bear Toss, and the Petes will hope that history repeats itself – they grinched the Greyhounds when they shut them out, 3-0, in their 2015 Teddy Bear Toss game.
The Petes will return home Thursday, November 30 for a rematch against the Greyhounds at 7:05 pm. Game tickets are available starting at $8 through the Collins Barrow PMC Box Office, online or, by phone at (705) 743-3561.
