A lot of chances came off Wellington Dukes sticks, but the results didn’t show on Thursday night.

Dukes fired 43 shots on the St. Michael’s Buzzers net, but left empty-handed in points after a 4-1 road loss.

Jacob Gorinsky was stellar with 42 stops, his lone blemish coming on a Colin Smith marker, his second of the season, in the second period.

Ethan Quick and Connor Hunt both extended their respective point streaks to three straight games with assists.

Shane Shelest denied 32 of 35 St. Mike’s chances in a losing cause.

The Dukes are back at it on a quick turnaround on Friday, welcoming the Haliburton County Huskies to the Duke Dome for a 7:30 p.m. puck drop and a Teddy Bear Toss/Toy Drive night.
