The highly improbable has become stark reality. I mean, did you see the Soo Greyhounds stealing Game 7 against the Sarnia Sting?
I sure didn’t.
And I don’t think very many did.
But the Greyhounds have done what very few thought they could.
After surrendering a 3-1 lead in games and having Sarnia tie the best-of-seven, Ontario Hockey League playoff series 3-3, not many gave the Soo much of a chance in the deciding match.
Undaunted, the no. 7 seed Greyhounds stunned the no. 2 seed Sting 4-3 in Sarnia on Tuesday night to seize the opening-round, Western Conference series in a seven-game stunner.
The Hounds beat the Sting only once in six regular-season tries.
But in this playoff series, the Hounds won four of seven games, three of which came on the road in Sarnia.
Did you see this coming?
And outside the Greyhound circle, I don’t think many others did either.
But it has happened.
The upstart Hounds have upset the upswing Sting.
