The Ontario Hockey League's top team cruised through the regular season. At one point, the club won 23 games straight.
So it was a new feeling for the 'Hounds when they found themselves on the brink of elimination in a must-win Game 7 against the Owen Sound Attack in the Western Conference semifinal this past Tuesday.
Owen Sound trailed 6-1 in the deciding tilt but made a late charge before losing, 9-7.
"We were pushed very hard by a very good Owen Sound Attack hockey club," said Greyhounds coach Drew Bannister. "As a group we probably faced the most adversity as we have throughout the season in that short time over the last week and a half."
