Wednesday Highlights: Battalion counterattack strikes again


For the second time this week, the North Bay Battalion have stunned the Sudbury Wolves, both times coming back from late deficits to take 6-5 victories. After doing so on Sunday in Sudbury, the Troops dug deep again as Cam Dineen’s (3) second goal of the night 3:15 into overtime completed a comeback that saw the Battalion rally from a 5-3 deficit with under seven minutes remaining. Brad Chenier (1) and Adam Thilander (1) scored 2:19 apart to knot the score at five before Dineen carried the puck up ice and snapped a wrister over the shoulder of Sudbury’s Marshall Frappier for the winner. Offseason acquisitions Luke Moncada (2) and Luke Burghardt (6) provided other goals for the Battalion. Overshadowed in the loss was Wolves rookie Blake Murray’s (1, 2, 3) first OHL hat-trick that came within a span of 7:19. The first goal was Murray’s first in the OHL after he was Sudbury’s first round (7th overall) pick in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection. Shane Bulitka (2) and newcomer Troy Lajeunesse (1) also scored for the Wolves who fall to 0-2-1-0 on the season. Both teams went 3-for-4 on the power play while North Bay outshot Sudbury 37-32. Dineen’s four points (2-2–4) tie a career high as the Battalion improve to 3-0-0-0.
