The battle of the Flyers prospects is underway, and the sleeper took Game 1.
Philadelphia Flyers prospect Matthew Strome assisted on the overtime game-winning goal for his Hamilton Bulldogs, helping to lead them past Morgan Frost and the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in Game 1 of the OHL Championship Series. Each player picked up an assist in the game, but Strome got the last laugh in this one.
Less than two minutes into overtime, Strome got the puck on net and it found its way home.
Strome skated down the wing and fired a shot that trickled through the goalie into the crease, where MacKenzie Entwistle was jockeying for position to tap it home.
Strome’s blast got through the goalie and Entwistle tapped it into the net.
A heavy shot can do some damage.
Strome was in the middle of it all.
Strome’s assist was just his second point in the last six games, and third point in his last eight games. He started off the playoffs with 13 points in his first seven games, but has cooled off since. Maybe this will get him going.
Frost’s assist gave him a three-game point streak, with five points in that span. He was also 10-for-16 on faceoffs in the game.
Game 2 between the Bulldogs and Greyhounds is Saturday night at 7:07 p.m.
