Sunday Action

Really not a whole lot to report about as 2 Ranger prospects were in action but neither stood out.

Bobby Sanguinetti and his Brampton Battalion hosted the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in OHL action. It was the battle of OHL division leaders as the Battalion lead the Central Division in the Eastern Conference while the Greyhounds lead the West division in the Western Conference.

The Battalion held home ice winning 4-1 as Sanguinetti was scoreless. Sanguinetti was a +1 for the game as the Troop played a strong 3rd period to break open what was a close game.

The Battalion are now off until Friday when they will travel to Mississauga

In the battle for the QMJHL's Eastern Division, Ryan Hillier and his Halifax Mooseheads hosted the division leading St John Sea Dogs. Entering this game, the Sea Dogs held a 2 point lead over the Mooseheads. It was a closely contested game all the way though as it wound up going to the shoot out before the Mooseheads won 2-1.

Hillier did not score despite leading the Mooseheads in shots with 8, had 3 good hits but missed on his shoot out attempt. Hillier's line did keep up the pressure on the Sea Dogs as they had 14 of the Moosehead's 36 shots.

With the win the Mooseheads pulled to within one point of the first place Sea Dogs. The Mooseheads are off until Wednesday when they visit Gatineau.
