Fast Start Lifts Otters over Mississauga 4-0

February 17, 2015

February 16, 2015 – Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Erie Otters

Mississauga, Ontario – Erie scored three goals in the first nine minutes before adding one in the second, shutting out Mississauga 4-0. Connor McDavid’s goal in the first period – along with two assists – extended his point streak to 19 games, a new Otters record.

The Otters wasted no time to jump out to an early lead against the Steelheads. Four and a half minutes in, Nick Betz found Mason Marchment unguarded in front of the Mississauga net and Marchment put the puck behind Jacob Brennan. It took another minute for Remi Elie to feed McDavid who grabbed the puck, handled around his skates and flipped it behind Brennan for his thirtieth of the year and the 2-0 lead.

Mississauga used a timeout to regroup after McDavid’s goal. In another three minutes, Cory Genovese took a shot from the point that hit the top of the net and, after a review, was called in favor of the Otters for the 3-0 lead. Travis Dermott got into a wrestling match with Bobby MacIntyre as tension mounted in front of Brennan, but the coincidental fighting majors were the only penalties of the period. Mississauga started to come back to life in the second half of the first, but Daniel Dekoning stopped all eight Steelheads shots.

The second period was full of big chances for the Otters. Marchment went between his legs, going backhand to forehand before being stopped by Brennan. Kurtis MacDermid and Cody Thompson had the game’s second fight before the Otters went to the penalty kill with an additional roughing minor. Defense came up big for Erie with Dekoning standing tall and the defensemen making big blocks in front.

Nick Baptiste had a great chance on a two on one shorthanded but Brennan made another big save for the Steelheads. But, with MacIntyre in the box for hooking, Dylan Strome found Baptiste and the Otters went up 4-0 with 13 seconds to go on the power play. Jake Marchment went to the box for slashing and almost immediately McDavid cut through the Mississauga defense, going inside and then outside, and nearly put the Otters up 5-0 shorthanded. The Otters killed the penalty before the horn sounded on the second period.

The Otters penalty kill continued to roll through the third period. Kyle Pettit went to the box early in the third, a penalty the Otters killed before MacDermid was called for checking from behind ten minutes later. Betz had an incredible shift on the penalty kill, muscling around the Steelheads along the boards behind Brennan, continuing to push shorthanded but was unable to score. The Otters penalty kill went five for five, keeping the Steelheads off the board. McDavid had two more close calls that Brennan was able to turn aside, holding the Erie lead at four. Dekoning tstopped a late Mississauga chance and the shutout held in the 4-0 Erie victory.

The shutout is the second for Dekoning in the OHL. McDavid’s first period goal gave him 30 on the season for the first time in his OHL career, and Elie notched two points in the win, extending his point streak to four games. After Saturday night’s OT loss to Owen Sound, the Otters officially clinched a spot in the OHL playoffs and with the shutout win, now trail the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds by six points for the top spot in the Western Conference with a game in hand.
