After dropping the series opener at home by a 5-2 score, Sudbury rewarded its fans with a 2-0 blanking of Powassan in Game 2. Combined, the Cubs drew 1,054 fans to Gerry McCrory Countryside Arena for the opening two games of the series.

Four players — two from each team — have been putting up the goals throughout this spring’s playoffs. Nolan Newton leads Sudbury with nine goals while rookie sensation Hudson Chitaroni has tallied eight times. Meanwhile, rookie star Reyth Smith leads Powassan with nine goals while Mathieu MacMillan has found range eight times.

Chitaroni and Smith are among the youngest players in the NOJHL with 2007 birth dates. And both are signed Ontario Hockey League draft picks — Chitaroni of the Sudbury Wolves and Smith of the North Bay Battalion.
