Greyhounds Run Away from Otters
Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario – The Erie Otters drop their third game of the row Saturday night in Sault Ste. Marie as the Greyhounds skated away to a 8-2 victory at the Essar Centre Saturday night.
            The Otters, after having a night off with Friday night’s game postponed in Sudbury, were set to snap their skid on the road. The Otters controlled the pace for the first ten minutes of the game, but could not beat Greyhounds goaltender Matt Murray. Sergey Tolchinsky seized an opportunity at 13:25 to open the scoring with a shot that beat Otter tender Oscar Dansk. Bryan Moore scored his first of the night with just 13 seconds left in the period to give the Greyhounds a 2-0 lead into the intermission.
            Erie looked to bounce back in the second as they built off of two early penalty kills, including one that led to an odd-man rush. Nick Betz received a pass from Dane Fox and on the attempted return to Fox, Betz’s pass hit the skate of Tyler Gaudet and rolled behind Murray getting the Otters on the board. Sault Ste. Marie was not phased as they tallied two more power play goals in the final five minutes of the period for a 4-1 lead after two.
            It was downhill from there as the third was all Greyhounds. Kyle Jenkins scored just 38 seconds into the period on the power play. Then Andrew Fritsch chased Dansk with his 22nd goal of the year. The Greyhounds would tack on two more by the finish of the game leading to the 8-2 decision.
            Connor Brown did notch his lead leading 19th power play goal of the season late in the third with the game out of reach. With the loss and a win by London, the Otters fall to fourth in the Western Conference with 88 points. The Otters will travel to Sudbury tomorrow before taking on the Wolves Monday night.
