Another day, another great play by Morgan Frost.
The Philadelphia Flyers prospect picked up two primary assists to help the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds to a thrilling 6-5 victory against the Flint Firebirds on Friday night.
It was a back-and-forth all game long, as the Firebirds took a 2-0 lead in the 1st period before the Greyhounds stormed back for two in the 2nd and one early in the 3rd that Frost set up to take the lead. From there the teams traded goals back and forth, with less than four minutes between each goal, culminating in a fantastic finish.
With the teams tied at two early in the 3rd period, Frost got a cross-ice pass and set up Ryan Roth in the slot for a one-time goal.
From there on out it was a goalfest. Flint scored at 9:15, 15:07, and 18:27 of the period to tie it up three times, but each time the Greyhounds retook the lead at 11:11:, 15:32, and finally 19:44 of the period to win the game 6-5.
Frost was on the ice for the game-winning goal, and made a nice touch pass between his legs to set up Barrett Hayton for the rush that he scored on.
It is now a 22-game winning streak for the Greyounds, and a 13-game point streak for Morgan Frost.
Here’s an update to Frost’s impressive streaks. He has 30 points (9 goals, 21 assists) during his 13-game point streak. He has points in 17 of his last 18 games as well, with 37 points (13 goals, 24 assists) in those 18 games. He missed one game of the win streak, but in 21 games he has 43 points (15 goals, 28 assists).
Frost is now tied for first in the OHL in points (58), is one behind the assists leader with 38, and extended his plus-minus lead to +46.
