Otters Give Up Five in First Period, Lose 6-1 in Sudbury

Matt Mead

SUDBURY, ON – The Otters headed to Sudbury Saturday night hoping to keep things rolling against the Wolves.  Things got going early when Peter Stratis started the scoring and put the hometown Wolves ahead 1-0. Matters got worse when Subury found their scoring stride with first period goals from Nolan Hutcheson, Kirill Nizhnikov, and two from David Levin – making it 5-0 heading into the first intermission.


Things toned down in the second for the majority of its duration.  Hayden Fowler broke the shutout just past the midway point and cut the lead to four for the only tally of the period.
In the third, the teams traded opportunities until Darian Pilon scored for the Wolves to elevate them to a 6-1 lead with the final goal of the evening.

The Otters will head to Sault Ste. Marie to take on the Greyhounds Sunday at 2:07PM.
