A Sudbury Saturday Night was not kind to the Kitchener Rangers.
The Wolves jumped all over the Blueshirts, scoring just 30 seconds into the game. Then, they packed it on.
Sudbury smoked the Blueshirts 6-1, Saturday. It was the fifth loss in six road games for the Rangers.
“We got outworked. We got out-battled. We weren't willing to play a road game that was required when we knew we were in tough,” said head coach Chris Dennis. “We just weren't ready to accept to play the way we needed to play.”
Marcus Vandenberg made 29 saves on 35 shots in his first start of the season. At the other end, the Rangers only managed to test Wolves net-minder, Joe Ranger, 23 times.
“I thought [Vandenburg] was terrific in the second and third,” said Dennis. “It was a really tough position to put him in...I'm very proud of him that he dug in and shut the door basically letting only two in, in the second and third, really hung out to dry on both of them. Really happy with how he hung on. That says a lot about him.”
The lone goal scorer for Kitchener was import defenceman Tomas Hamara.
