March 8, 2014 – Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Mississauga Steelheads

Mississauga, ON – Coming off of an overtime loss in Ottawa against the 67’s on Tuesday, the Steelheads were hungry to get back in the win column in the midst of a tight playoff race. Meanwhile, the North Bay Battalion marched into the Hershey Centre hot off of an 8-1 rout of the Belleville Bulls last night.

The 1st period saw Spencer Martin make several big saves to keep the Trout in the game early. However, the Battalion would strike first after a pass from Matt MacLeod found Miles Liberati who made no mistake on the shot from close range. The Steelheads looked to equalize after Kyle Wood headed to the penalty box for hooking, with Andrew Goldberg and Josh Burnside both coming close to even up the score. In his second game as a member of the Steelheads, Cody Thompson also made an impact on offense early with a hard shot that Jake Smith was able to turn away. With two minutes remaining in the frame, Martin made an acrobatic save on Ben Thomson to keep the game within one.

Shots were 14-7 in favour of North Bay after 20 minutes, and their offense would continue into the 2nd. The frame opened with Damian Bourne and Brenden Miller dropping the gloves after just 11 seconds. Ben Thomson would increase the Battalion lead to two after sneaking one through Martin’s five-hole, with the assists going to Mathew Santos and Barclay Goodrow. At the halfway point of the period, Jamie Lewis and Alex Henriksson came breaking in on a 2-on-1, and Henriksson buried his shot to increase the lead to three. After DiTomaso was called for hooking, the Steelheads penalty kill went to work and was able to create some good chances on offense, but were not able to capitalize, ending the 2nd period down 3-0.

Mississauga born and raised Nick Paul would seal the deal for the Troops with his 26th of the year at the 15minute mark of the 3rd period. The Steelheads wrap up a busy week with a visit to Kingston this Sunday, before a critical home-and-home with Niagara on Thursday and Friday.
