March 25, 2014 – Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Mississauga Steelheads

MISSISSAUGA, ON – With the Oshawa Generals taking full advantage of the General Motors Centre, the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals shifted to The Hershey Centre, where the Mississauga Steelheads would look to make up some ground in the series. The Mississauga faithful were happy to see the return of Bryson Cianfrone after he sat out a tight second game of the series, while Generals fans were glad to see their Captain Josh Brown back in the lineup.

 

Mississauga would start the game on the attack, pressuring Daniel Altshuller early. The Trout nearly broke through on a great chance for Greg DiTomaso, however the Generals would escape unscathed. The Steelheads would turn up the heat after Damian Bourne came out on the winning end of a tilt with Brown, and Sam Babintsev would capitalize by sniping his first of the playoffs, a power play marker assisted by Jared Walsh and Stefan LeBlanc. Oshawa would answer just under three-minutes later however, a power play marker of their own as Cole Cassels got his stick on the puck in front. The teams headed to the intermission on equal ground with a 1-1 score, and 12 shots a piece.

 

The Steelheads would get an early advantage as Hunter Smith was sent to the box just 1:45 into the period. The Steelheads would be unable to convert on the power play, however Austin Gerhart would give the Trout a 2-1 advantage at 5:18 of the second. Babintsev would waste no time picking up his second of the game to extend the Steelheads lead to 3-1 on the power play, however Michael Dal Colle would pull the Generals back within one just a minute later. The teams would trade special teams opportunities to end the period, however no further goals would be scored, sending the Trout into the intermission up 3-2.

 

Eager to tie the game, Oshawa came out flying to start the third period. First, Scott Laughton tied the game for the Gens just 41 seconds into the period, then Dylan Smoskowitz would pick up his first of the playoffs at 2:26. Michael Dal Colle would seemingly put the game out of reach a minute and a half later, making it 5-3 Generals. The Steelheads would refuse to go down, however, as Lucas Venuto hammered home a one-time pass from Damian Bourne on the power play at 9:45 of the period to pull the Trout within one. After a number of close calls, Sam Babintsev would tie it up with 90 seconds to go, finishing off his hat trick to send the game to overtime.

 

With the teams heading to their second overtime game in a row, both teams found themselves with great opportunities; however the goalies shone in the end-to-end action. Lucas Venuto found himself with a great opportunity but was unable to convert, and the teams would head to double overtime.

 

The Steelheads would find themselves in another power play situation three minutes into the period with Josh Burnside being hauled down on a break, however the teams would head back to even strength with a call against the Trout. Following the TV timeout, Josh Sterk would end the second overtime with Smoskowitz and Suellentrop picking up the assists on the game-winning goal.

 

With the win, the Generals move to 3-0 in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals; Game 4 goes at 7:30 on Thursday evening at the Hershey Centre.

 

Great seats are still available by logging on to Ticketmaster, or visiting the Hershey Centre Box Office.
