Greyhounds losing skid continues in London (Updated)

Sunday, November 11, 2012   by: Brad Coccimiglio

LONDON, ONT. – The Soo Greyhounds wrapped up a three-game road trip on Sunday afternoon with a 5-3 loss to the London Knights.

The loss marks the fifth straight for a Greyhounds team that drops their record to 9-11-1-0.

The two teams traded first-period goals as Colin Miller opened the scoring for the Greyhounds with a power play marker only to see Nikita Zadorov tie the game up 27 seconds later.

The Knights took a 2-1 lead in the second period when Matt Rupert scored just over six minutes into the frame. Andrew Fritsch would tie the game at two but Max Domi would score back-to-back goals, including giving the Knights the lead just 1:59 after Fritsch tied the game.

Josh Anderson of London and Greyhounds forward Michael Schumacher would round out the scoring with goals late in the third period.

Greyhounds netminder Matt Murray stopped 32 shots while Knights goaltender Jake Patterson, a Sault native, stopped 20 shots in the win.

The loss left the Greyhounds winless on the trip after losses in Kitchener on Friday and Owen Sound on Saturday night.

The Greyhounds now return home to open a three-game homestand that begins on Nov. 16 against Brampton.

OTHER SCORES: Brampton 5, Guelph 1; Kingston 5, Saginaw 4 (SO); Mississauga 2, Peterborough 1; Belleville 3, Ottawa 2; Sarnia 3, Sudbury 2; Kitchener 2, Oshawa 1

I's not easy for any team to go into London and win. The Hounds also have a number of players out, that hurts!!!!

Norm you'll be alright, tell me the last time this team was entertaining and competitive, let me tell you 90-91-92-and 93, when they had a coach, management and scouts, I ended my season tickets last year along with my friends.

I'm,,, I didn`t say they are entertaining, or good for that matter, just playing with a depleted team. We`ll have to see what happens when they`re back at full strength. Good bad, whatever.

I watched the game on shaw and thought the Greyhounds had played well enough to win. The killer in my opinion was when David Broll took a 2 minute minor penalty after Cousins took the 2 handed slash. The Greyhounds would have had a 2 man advantage for a full 2 minutes. With the talent they could have put out there, I am sure they would have at least scored one goal and perhaps turned the game around. David Broll has to use what he has between the ears if he wants to help this team win. He was also goaded into a ten minute misconduct penalty. I wish he would use that 6 foot 3, 235 pound frame to intimidate and punish the opposition instead of using his vocal cords when the play has stopped and the referees are in between the players. He has played very well this year, but I think he could do more to help the Hounds win some games. I would also like to add that even though the Hounds lost all three games on the road they were in every game and didn't quit against three pretty good teams.
