Well done boys. Feels good spanking NB
Huge game tomorrow and Sunday.
Go Wolves Go!
There all huge. Win or lost wolves show up on most nights.
Congrats on the win folks. Absolutely pathetic and embarrassing performance by our guys in the bay. Embarrassing to watch, couple of good fights, nice too see the rivalry alive once again
They sure are. Playing for home ice advantage.. would be huge
I got my answer...the Ohl website was off a bit as usual...misconduct for a jersey violation
Nice to see the power play get rolling tonight.. we needed that. Big confidence boost
Wolves 3/5 on the pp. Start the investigation.
Demeo. 2 games in North Bay. 2 beautiful goals. 2 goals all season. We make him look like Erik Karlsson.
PS: should/could have started the backup.
Totally dominated the Troops , it wasn't even close .
For all the years we were bombed by the Bay I have to tell you it actually puts a very big smile on my face!!! FINALLY!!! I love when Butler blows his stack.
Looks like an impressive win.
I've only seen your goalie Ukko play twice against the Battalion so I don't know if he's any good or not....he hasn't had to make a save yet!!
Really like Ruzicka, great pickup
It’s funny but to me they put forth a similar game against Saginaw but ran into a very hot goalie and didn’t get the win. This tells me this team is capable of bringing a pretty darn good A game when they choose to. I love Ukko but let’s say this won’t be his toughest shutout and he didn’t have to steal it by any means.
Finally, absolutely agree kudos have to be given to the coaching staff for really preparing the team and obviously getting them in the right mind set. Nice to see the PP produce.
I think he had to make five or so good ones. So much for the Wolves are only Ukko stealing games crowd. Admittedly though, the results would certainly suggest that his presence itself is what’s really essential.
It really was 3DN
This is true and actually was last year too.
The Pilons continue to demonstrate their true value to the success of this team. They generate so many scoring chances, play specialty teams and give 110 percent every shift. They continue to brighten their future game in and game out. For all the Nays that did not think they belonged, enjoy a good helping of CROW.
As I predicted the team did rally without Levin. Better passing, shooting, scoring and power play. An all around team performance. Let’s hope it continues tonight. Go Wolves.
He took off both elbow pads, too...might have had something to do with it. And yes, his jersey looked to be untied.
Thoughts from last night...
It wasn't even close from the start. North Bay looked uninterested, but I think in part was because the Wolves were flying.
Everyone played well. Everyone was noticeable and had strong shifts, goof cycle, chances, backcheck, etc.
Phillips was unreal on the blueline last night. I wish he would have shot a bit more, but he made so many great decisions, stepped up at the offensive blueline, neutral zone and stood tall in his own end.
UPL was a non-factor (in a good way), which was great to see. A Shutout when he wasn't the best player on the ice. He made a good save on Coe on a breakaway, but the game was 5-0 then...he did his job. This was one game when his team did the work for him and allowed him to pick up an easy SOW.
Billoink mentioned it...Pilons are perfect for this team. They don't take a shift off, they've improved a tonne skill-wise and overall are just two very valuable players.
Ruzicka was very good.
The defence was almost flawless. Demeo fought the puck a bit early, but cleaned it up and it didn't effect the game. Candella looked like a leader, Stratis moved the puck well and played with some grit, Serensits and Ross played physical, but not stupid - overall everyone was very, very good.
And Ross, O'Bonsawin and Serenstis dropping the mitts was great to see. All did well.
Really good to see an effort and result like that last night.
Last 2 games vs. North Bay
W 5-0, W 7-0
Outscored NB 12-0
Outshot NB 94-42
Need that same team effort tonight!
I'm really looking forward to Ross, Serensits, Demeo, Phillips and Thompson next season. This group is getting better every game. Stratis....meh!
Great to see some traffic in front of goalie last night. First time this season I can recall goalies having to deal with a screen, consistently all night.
Also watching Malik; he may actually be a solid d-man with another 4-5 years in the O!
Liked your post until I saw the bit about Stratis. What don’t you like about his game? Man when we win 7-0, to me the only reason to single players out is for something positive.
Seems like DeMeo was the perfect pickup
