SAULT STE. MARIE, Ont. - David Broll scored at 1:56 of overtime Wednesday as the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds rallied to beat the Plymouth Whalers 4-3 in the Ontario Hockey League.

Sergey Tolchinsky, with a goal and an assist, Darnell Nurse and Colin Miller also scored for the Greyhounds (15-16-2), who got two assists each from Chris Buonomo and Nick Cousins.

Matt Murray stopped 22 shots to get the win.

Matthew Mistele scored a pair of goals while for the Whalers (14-9-8), while Garrett Meurs had the other.

Matt Mahalak made 28 saves in taking the loss as the Whalers dropped their fifth straight. Four of those defeats have come in overtime or a shootout.

Sault Ste. Marie trailed 3-1 in the third period before Tolchinski cut the deficit to one at 8:52. Nurse then tied the score with 33 seconds left in regulation to force overtime.

OTTAWA - After a nine-game road trip spanned over three weekends, home didn't treat the Ottawa 67's kindly at all Wednesday night.

After going 1-7-1 away from the nation's capita, the 67's returned home to face the Belleville Bulls and were embarrassed, despite the relatively even 2-0 final in Ontario Hockey League play.

Jake Worrad and Aaron Berisha each scored for the Bulls (19-9-4), who increased their lead in the East Division to five points over the Oshawa Generals and pulled to within a point of the Barrie Colts, leaders of the Eastern Conference.

The 67's (8-23-3), remain in the OHL basement, should be pleased with the final score considering they were outshot 46-15.

Clint Windsor was sensational in the Ottawa goal, while Charlie Graham earned what is likely the easiest shutout of his career in place of Malcolm Subban, who is at Canada world junior selection camp.

The 67's will get some relief for their next game, Friday at home against the Peterborough Petes, as both Sean Monahan and Tyler Graovac were cut from Canada's camp earlier in the day.
