Erin Mills Town Centre Preview: February 21

February 21, 2014 – Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Mississauga Steelheads

MISSISSAUGA, ON   –   The Mississauga Steelheads (21-32-1-3, 7th in Eastern Conference) have found great success at home, and will look to continue that with two more games at the Hershey Centre this weekend. As the Trout approach the end of the regular season, only six home games remain, many with heavy implications for the postseason – none more so than this weekend coming up.

 

The Peterborough Petes (25-27-0-5, 6th in Eastern Conference) will be the first to visit the Hershey Centre as KIA Presents Friday night’s matchup between two playoff teams. Peterborough currently holds a nine-point edge over Mississauga with 11 games to play for both teams. The Petes currently hold a lead in the season series, with two wins to Mississauga’s one entering their final matchup of the regular season. Peterborough was victorious over Saginaw in their last game, however dropped five games in a row prior to Thursday night.

 

The Niagara IceDogs (18-31-3-5, 9th in Eastern Conference) will round out their weekend with a visit to Mississauga on Sunday as THE HOME DEPOT  presents the 2:00 matchup, with a special appearance by Mississauga’s own JAMMER’S WAFFLEHOUSE ! Niagara is currently in the thick of the playoff race, sitting just outside of the postseason due to a tiebreaker with the Ottawa 67’s (20-32-1-3, 8th in Eastern Conference). They trail the Steelheads by only two points with equal games played as they will host the North Bay Battalion (31-21-4-2, 4th in Eastern Conference) on Saturday night prior to visiting Mississauga. The season series is currently locked at two games a piece, with three more games between the Central Division rivals following Sunday’s contest.

 

LAST GAME

February 17, 2014 vs. Sudbury

Steelheads Fall on Family Day

Wearing a different shade of blue and white, Trevor Carrick led the Sudbury Wolves into the Hershey Centre for this first time since the January trade that saw him moved to Sudbury in exchange for Stefan LeBlanc. The Central Division-leading Wolves would be the first to strike, with Nick Baptiste and Radek Faksa connecting to set each other up on first period goals. Andrew Goldberg notched his 14th goal of the season in the second period, however Carrick would pick up a point on goal number three, and Baptiste and Faksa would reconnect on an empty netter to seal a Sudbury victory on Family Day.

Steelheads Can’t Catch Petes

It was an offensively-charged contest in Peterborough in the last meeting between the Trout and the Petes. The home team struck with two goals by the midway point of the first period before Sam Babintsev’s power play marker ended the opening frame. Peterborough would regain a two goal lead early in the second period, but Greg DiTomaso answered right back to once again pull Mississauga within one. Peterborough would put the game out of reach in the period, adding two more to take a commanding 5-2 lead into the third period. Despite goals by Babintsev and Brett Foy it was too little too late for Mississauga, falling 5-4 on the road.   

 

January 31, 2014 vs. Niagara

Steelheads Swim Past Dogs in Standings

With a Brett Foy power play goal just three minutes into the first period, fans in attendance had no reason to expect anything less than an offensive show. The Steelheads and IceDogs would crack down on defense however, as Spencer Martin’s 38-save effort would earn him the game’s first star. Niagara was able to beat Martin in the second period, however Sam Babintsev’s ninth goal of the season would serve as a second-period game winner as Mississauga defended home ice.
