Ingram was the game's second star.

This was a really strong season for Syracuse in terms of both overall performance and the ability to develop a very young group of players in the process. It's a shame that may end up being tempered by the embarassment of being swept by a very deep and powerful Toronto Marlies club. Looking forward to next year the club will get yet another influx of high caliber youth like Boris Katchouk and Alex Barre-Boulet, among others. So, the success is sustainable, but Toronto remains a problematic adversary in the division to overcome.

After dropping Game 1 on home ice, the Soo fought back with a strong 2nd period that was the difference maker in the Game 2 equalizer for the Greyhounds. The Soo were paced by a two-goal, three-point night by Morgan Frost (PHI, 2017 1st round pick) and by a 36-save performance by Matthew Villalta (LAK, 3rd round pick). Frost set up top prospect Barret Hayton (2018 draft eligible) for a power play talley early in the first, but Game 1 hero MacKenzie Entwistle (ARI, 2017 3rd round pick) scored a power play marker of his own just 25 seconds before the 1st intermission to knot the score. Bolt prospect Taylor Raddysh would then set up Frost for his power play goal in the 2nd to reestablish the Soo lead, followed by what would eventually be the game-winner by Jack Kopacka (ANA, 2016 4th round pick). Later in the 3rd period, Brandon Saigeon (2018 draft eligible) would notch his 2nd of the series and 14th of the playoffs, a power play goal that would draw the Bulldogs within one, but Frost would seal the victory with an empty net shortie with 14 seconds left in the game. The series moves to Hamilton Monday night for Game 3.

MacKenzie Entwistle (ARI, 2017 3rd round pick) scored his second goal of the game just shy of two minutes into overtime for the Game 1 winner, as the Bulldogs steal a road game off the Soo. The Greyhounds spotted Hamilton three goals with Entwistle opening the scoring late in the 1st, followed by goals from Robert Thomas (STL, 2017 1st round pick) and Brandon Saigeon (2018 draft eligible) early in the 2nd. But the Soo would regroup and some familiar faces to Lightning prospect followers would rise up. After Barrett Hayton (2018 draft eligible) broke the seal, Bolt prospects Boris Katchouk and Taylor Raddysh would help spark with rally, scoring in the 2nd and 3rd to eventually force OT. These two teams are back at it Saturday night for Game 3 in Saulte Ste. Marie.

Jack Kopacka (ANA, 2016 4th round pick) scored the double OT Game 7 winner at the 84:00 mark, and the Soo punch their ticket to OHL Finals against the Hamilton Bulldogs. Bolt prospect Boris Katchouk scored the Greyhounds first two goals and teamed with fellow Lighting prospect Taylor Raddysh to set up Morgan Frost (PHI, 2017 1st round pick) for the Soo’s third goal. The Rangers fought back after each Greyhound goal, knotting the game at 1-1, 2-2, and finally at 3-3 with just 52 seconds left in regulation. Katchouk earned First Star honors for his two goal, three point effort, and now leads the OHL playoffs in goals, points, and short-handed goals. The date of Game 1 of the OHL Finals has not yet been announced.
