IceDogs drop sixth straight
The Niagara IceDogs’ losing streak reached six games with a 6-0 loss to the Sudbury Wolves in Ontario Hockey League action Friday night in Sudbury.
The IceDogs, 5-11-2-1, were blanked for the second game in a row after dropping a 4-0 decision to Erie Sunday.
“Disappointing night, both special teams really let us down and we could not execute what we wanted,” IceDogs coach Billy Burke said. “If we could’ve got our power play clicking during the first two periods it would’ve been a completely different game as our five-on-five play, especially from the young guys, was pretty good.”
Burke liked what he saw from rookies Cameron Snow, Ryan Campbell and Anthony Agostinelli.
“They all played great. They had big energy, played within the structure and created chances all night,” Burke said.
The Wolves jumped out to a 2-0 lead after one period and then added two more in each of the next two periods.
Kalle Loponen, Owen Robinson, Quinton Byfield, Nolan Hutchinson, Shane Bulitka and David Levin scored for the Wolves.
Christian Purboo made 28 saves for the shutout.
Christian Sbaraglia kicked out 35 shots in a losing effort.
The IceDogs are in Hamilton Sunday at 2 p.m. and Peterborough Thursday at 7 p.m.
