Greyhounds winning streak ends in PeterboroughSaturday, February 09, 2013 by: Brad Coccimiglio
After moving into top spot in the Ontario Hockey League’s West Division, the Soo Greyhounds dropped back into second on Friday night.
The Greyhounds dropped a 3-2 decision in Peterborough to the Petes on Friday night. Couple that with a Plymouth Whalers win over Owen Sound, also on Friday night, and the Whalers jump one point up on the Greyhounds in the standings.
The loss ends a five-game winning streak for the Greyhounds on the road. The loss was also the first regulation loss for the Greyhounds Jan. 18 in Saginaw.
Nick Cousins and Ryan Sproul led the way offensively for the Greyhounds with a goal and an assist each in the loss. Sproul now has a point in nine straight games. Brandon Alderson saw his 11-game point streak come to an end in the loss.
Goaltender Justin Nichols stopped 31 shots for the Greyhounds.
Nick Czinder had a goal and an assist for the Petes in the win. Cody Thompson and Echo Bay-native Brett Findlay also scored for the Petes in the win. Czinder’s goal, at 14:57 of the third period, held up as the game-winner.
Petes goaltender Andrew D’Agostini stopped 40 shots.
The Greyhounds return to action on Sunday night when they end a three-game road trip in Oshawa against the Generals.
