Otters Swim Past Steelheads

February 16, 2015 – Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Mississauga Steelheads

Jake Brennan and Daniel Dekoning got the call in this, the final meeting between the Mississauga Steelheads and the Erie Otters, in front of a sold out crowd at the Hershey Centre.

The Erie line of Jake Marchment, Dylan Strome and Nick Betz created pressure for the visitors in the early minutes of the game, and would find the back of the net at the five minute mark. Marchment finished off a Strome feed to give the Otters a 1-0 lead. The Steelheads held their own in terms of possession and creating offensive chances. Connor McDavid extended the Otters lead with an individual effort, out-waiting Brennan and beating him low on the post side. Cory Genovese scored in a shot from the point that eluded Brennan; Erie tallied three goals in a 4:12 span. Bobby MacIntyre and Travis Dermott dropped the gloves in the Steelheads zone just after the midway point of the period, igniting some energy for their respective benches. Mikey McLeod looked strong for Mississauga, directing a handful of shots on goal and creating plays for the Trout. Jason Smith had a good, gritty shift along the boards, moving through two Erie players late in the frame. The Steelheads narrowed the gap in shots, but took a three-goal deficit into the intermission.

The Steelheads entered the second with energy, the teams alternating pressure, but it was Stefan LeBlanc with the best chance if the first five minutes. He had a point shot blocked, and wired the second chance just off the side of the net. Marchment took Erie’s first minor penalty of the game, sending the Trout to the power play. The Steelheads couldn’t convert with the man advantage, but still managing possession time and keeping the Erie offence at bay. The Steelheads had two more power play opportunities in the period, but were still without a goal. The Otters were given their first power play chance in the period. Mississauga played well on the kill, but the pressure proved too much. Baptiste notched Erie’s fourth goal of the game in the dying seconds of the advantage.

Mississauga held play in the Erie zone in the early minutes of the final frame, facilitated in part by another Steelheads power play. The Trout continued to rival Erie’s play, minimalizing their scoring chances and equaling their physicality, but the same was happening to them. While they maintained pressure in the offensive zone, the Otters did a sound job of forcing the Steelheads to the perimeter, easing Dekoning’s workload. The Steelheads tied the Otters in shots at 10 apiece in the third period, but couldn’t find the back of the net and were unable to avoid the season sweep by this Erie squad.
