The Kitchener Rangers winger was a hot topic leading into Sunday's must-win game against Sault Ste. Marie at the Aud.
The Greyhounds wanted Sherwood suspended for the potential Western Conference-clinching affair, after they felt he delivered a knee-on-knee hit to defenceman Rasmus Sandin in Friday's Game 5 in the Soo.
They even sent a video of the hit to the Ontario Hockey League to bolster their case — to no avail.
Then in Game 6 they watched Sherwood score the game-winning goal in overtime to cap a 4-3 Rangers win and set up a Game 7 Monday to decide which team will move on to the OHL championship against the Hamilton Bulldogs.
