Soo Greyhounds goaltender Tucker Tynan was given a match penalty for this blocker punch on Guelph Sasha Pastujov, who was also ejected.

Guelph Storm coach George Burnett and two of his players have been suspended by the OHL as a result of Thursday night's second period melee.

Sasha Pastujov was suspended for two games for his charging major on Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds goaltender Tucker Tynan. Danny Zhilkin received two games for apparently leaving the Storm bench during the ensuing melee. Burnett received two games because one of his players left the bench.

No penalty was called on Zhilkin at the time of the incident.

Tynan received a three game suspension for a blocker punch on Pastujov.

Game 5 of the best-of-seven series goes Saturday night in the Sault, with Game 6, if necessary, back in Guelph Monday.

The Hounds lead the series 3-1.
