Their biggest mistake was to call a penalty two minutes into the game. Instead, they should have looked to trade off a few non-calls and allow the two teams to skate end to end at the start of the game - let the game develop some flow first!

However, they didn’t - and of course the worst possible thing that can happen to a good hockey game happened – a team scores on the early PP. And in last night’s case the opposing team scored twice!

This put the underdog home team - playing against one of the hottest teams in the OHL – in front of a near sellout crowd - down 0-2 midway through the 1st period. So now the officials are looking at each other thinking – how do we fix this mess?

Well, of course, as is always the case, after unnecessary calls lead to PP goals, the officials try their best to help the other team get those goals back, however, in this case, the home team would have no part of their help, but instead insisted on doing it on their own.

When you think about the obstacle the Ice Dogs had to overcome to fight back and win against Peterborough – is quite remarkable really!

Go Dogs!
