Anthony DeAngelo was back in the Soo lineup after missing Game 3 due to an injury. DeAngelo continued to quarterback the Greyhounds’ power play, but was unable to shoot with any force due to the injury. The Otters tried to shut off passing lanes as DeAngelo became predictable before managing to get at least one wrist shot on net. The game was tied 4-4 late before Erie exploded for two goals. SSM got it back within one before an empty net goal. DeAngelo took a late penalty with the frustrated Greyhounds down 6-4 and Connor McDavid on a breakaway looking to put the game away. McDavid was stopped, but at the other end DeAngelo got into a shoving match with an Erie defenseman. The ref watched closely as DeAngelo gave the defenseman a closed-hand glove to the jaw and called the penalty. DeAngelo was back on the ice with the goalie pulled down one, but the Nicholas Baptiste (Sabres) scored his fourth goal of the game. McDavid (future Oiler) had four assists. Game 5 is back in the Soo on Thursday.
