Rough 'Knight' in London

November 22, 2014 – Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Mississauga Steelheads

MISSISSAUGA, ON – With two wins in their last three games, the Mississauga Steelheads rode the 401 westbound for a Friday night matchup with the always-tough London Knights. With a shakeup earlier in the day that saw Greg DiTomaso and Jesse Barwell depart for Saginaw, newly-acquired Jimmy Lodge joined the Steelheads for his first game in the blue and white just hours after the trade.

A couple of OHL veterans lined up between the pipes as Mississauga’s Spencer Martin battled London’s Michael Giugovaz in what most would expect would be a fairly low-scoring game, the first period went according to script. While the chances were plentiful early in the game, Martin gained the upper hand, turning away London’s attack before Mississauga struck back with opportunities of their own. It was a free-flowing period as the first infraction of the game would not come until the 15:48 mark; unfortunately for Mississauga, it would also bring the first goal of the game. With the man-advantage, Max Domi found Julius Bergman; while Martin made the initial save, Mitchell Marner pounced on the rebound and buried it into the empty net to give London a 1-0 lead at 16:39. Mississauga would strike back with a power play opportunity of their own, however they could not find the back of the net and headed to the break down one goal. With the Trout being outshot 18-8 in the period, Josh Burnside kept it simple in what needed to be done in the second, “Get traffic in front of the net, and shots on the net.”

Mississauga jumped out onto the attack early in the second period as the newest Steelhead tied the game just 1:32 into the frame. Looking like they’ve played together for years, Sam Babintsev fed Captain Bryson Cianfrone, who fed a perfect pass to Lodge; he made no mistake burying the puck to tie the game at 1. Michael McLeod would add to the lead just 2:30 later, as Damian Bourne sprung him up the wing. With his best Peter Forsberg impression, McLeod’s highlight reel marker made it 2-1. The action-packed period would continue, unfortunately not in favour of Mississauga. With the Trout down a man, Christian Dvorak found the puck alone in front of the net, making a nice move to tie the game at 5:45. Marner soon after picked up his second of the game, another rebound marker at 8:21. The Trout attempted to re-tie the game with great pressure shortly after, unfortunately a quick London counter saw Domi find Marner in front for his hat-trick marker at 11:04. 2 minutes later, the Steelheads would find themselves in a scrum, resulting in Nick Zottl’s exit from the game. London would take back-to-back penalties, followed by back-to-back Mississauga penalties, effectively creating a special teams half of the period. Within the chaos, London’s Domi picked up a marker, before Brandon Devlin answered on the power play just 40 seconds later, with Sean Day and Cianfrone picking up assists.

With Mississauga finding themselves down a man to start the third, the Trout settled their penalty kill down, killing off the London opportunity, before earning three power play opportunities, which London would successfully kill off as well. The goalies would resurface in the period however, as all opportunities were turned aside until the 18:05 mark, when Marner netted his fourth goal of the game, sealing the London victory at Budweiser Gardens.

Spencer Martin made 43 saves in the losing effort, while Michael Giugovaz stopped 30 shots. The Steelheads return to action this Sunday afternoon at 2:00 PM as the Peterborough Petes visit the Hershey Centre.
