March 2, 2014
By

February 27, 2014 – Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Niagara IceDogs

The Niagara IceDogs lost a tough 3-1 decision to the visiting Mississauga Steelheads at the Jack on Thursday night.

It would be the visitors who would open the scoring, picking up a powerplay goal 4:09 in as Mississauga would take a 1-0 lead. The IceDogs would apply a great deal of pressure late in the frame as they looked to tie things up, but they would be unable to score and would trail by one after 20 minutes. Shots after the first were 11-7 IceDogs.

The second period would see each side looking for the important next goal and Mississauga would have a huge opportunity to get that goal in the final five minutes of the frame when the IceDogs would face a 5-on-3 penalty kill for 1:23. The IceDogs would battle and kill of both penalties, gaining momentum and putting some serious pressure on Mississauga again late in the second, but the score would remain 1-0 headed to the third. Shots after 40 minutes favoured the IceDogs 21-20.

The IceDogs would carry the momentum of their strong finish to the second into the early part of the third and would finally be rewarded only 47 seconds into the period when Jordan Maletta would bang one home in front to tie things up at 1-1. They would keep the pressure going, but unfortunately for the IceDogs faithful it would be Mississauga that would score next, scoring at the 5:24 mark of the period to retake the lead at 2-1. The IceDogs would appear to tie things up once again less than a minute later, but the goal would be waved off. To make things worse Mississauga would then score again immediately off of the ensuing faceoff to extend the lceDogs deficit to 3-1. The IceDogs would battle the rest of the period as they looked to get back in the game, but they would be unable to score and would ultimately fall by the same 3-1 score. Final shots were 32-28 IceDogs.

The IceDogs will now head north for the rest of the weekend, visiting Sudbury on Saturday before finishing the weekend by visiting North Bay on Sunday afternoon. The IceDogs will next return home next Thursday when they play host to the visiting Plymouth Whalers. Tickets for this and all other IceDogs home games are still available and can be purchased at any IceDogs ticketing location!
