Frost is catching fire.
Philadelphia Flyers forward prospects Morgan Frost and Matthew Strome are facing off in the OHL Finals with a championship on the line. Strome came out on top in Game 1, assisting on the overtime winner to open the series, with Frost picking up an assist in the loss.
This time, the script was flipped. Frost had the big game for the winning Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, with two goals and an assist in a 4-2 win. Strome did pick up an assist for the Hamilton Bulldogs as well.
Frost’s first point of the night was as easy as they come. He had the puck on his stick for less than a second before dishing it to Barrett Hayton, who did the rest to score a beauty of a backhander.
His other two points took a bit more effort.
On his first goal, a power-play marker, Frost crept down the left side, received a great cross-ice pass from Taylor Raddysh, and fired home a wrister into the open net.
It was a great play and Frost made no mistake about it.
Frost’s final point of the night, a goal, sealed the win for the Greyhounds. He chased down a missed shot and put it into the empty net with 14 seconds remaining to secure the Game 2 victory.
Frost finished the game with two goals, one assist, five shots on goal, a +1 rating, and won 18 of 23 faceoffs. His faceoff numbers usually go overlooked, but he lost just five draws all game. He lost just six draws in Game 1, making him 28-for-39 in the series.
Frost is now on a four-game point streak in the playoffs. He has three goals and five assists for eight points during that span.
The series now shifts to Hamilton for Games 3 and 4 on Monday and Wednesday nights.
