Yet that is exactly what coach Derek Erickson and company accomplished on Sunday, closing out victories of 2-1 and 5-2 on Saturday with yet another 5-2 triumph the next morning at Carmichael Arena.
Camilo Rodrigue-Melo netted a hat trick in the series finale, with single tallies from Felix Coté and Gregory Trudeau-Paquet as Sudbury evened their record at 3-3-1.
Tristan Flood and Kaleb Peldjak replied in a losing cause for North Bay. Rodrigue-Melo kicked off his weekend on the right foot, drilling the game-winning goal at 6:21 of the third period, snapping a 1-1 tie in Game 1.
With the teams playing more than 20 minutes of scoreless hockey to start the game, Trudeau-Paquet broke the ice, burying a feed from Waasnoode Nashkawa at 12:31 of the middle stanza.
Connor Eastaugh pulled the visitors even early in the third, before Rodrigue-Melo settled matters, once and for all.
The Wolves outscored the Trappers 2-1 in both the first and second period Saturday evening before Coté sealed the deal, striking the empty net with just 11 seconds to play.
Jacob Burton, Nashkawa, Devun St. Pierre and Philip Barry scored earlier in the game for Sudbury, with Craig Johnson and Mackenzie Aiken countering for North Bay.
In Minor Bantam AAA action, the Nickel City Minor Bantam AAA Sons avenged a loss to the crosstown rival Sudbury Wolves at the Showcase weekend earlier this month, picking up three wins in as many games this past weekend.
A power-play goal by Damien Giroux early in the third snapped a 1-1 tie, lifting the Sons to a 2-1 win in Game 1.
Julien Tubin (Sudbury) and Shane Poitras (Nickel City) traded goals in the second frame, setting the stage for a "winner-take-all" final 17 minutes of play.
The Sons made it two straight just four hours later when second period goals from Jordan Spadafore, Christian Gaudreau and Giroux combined with a 22-save performance from Matty Mayhew backstopped the Nickel City crew to a 3-0 win over the Wolves.
Poitras and Giroux were back at it in Game 3, scoring two goals apiece in helping to lead the Sons to a 7-3 win over Sudbury.
Eric Rainville, Mathieu Seguin and Joel Pitre rounded out the attack, with Joseph Cassio, Mathieu Dokis-Dupuis and Tubin answering for the Wolves.
Although none of the local NOHL teams are hosting this coming weekend, the Sudbury Minor (Blue) Peewees travel to North Bay, the Sudbury Minor Bantams are in the Soo while Nickel City visits North Bay, and the Sudbury Major Peewees make it three crews heading to the Gateway City to face the Trappers.
