January 30, 2015 – Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Mississauga Steelheads

MISSISSAUGA, ON – With the Eastern Conference playoff race heating up, the Mississauga Steelheads headed up Highway 69 looking to regain some ground after falling at the hands of the North Bay Battalion on Wednesday evening.

Entering the game with an undefeated record against the Wolves this season, James Boyd called on Jacob Brennan to keep the streak alive for the Trout. Mississauga showed no signs of “bus legs” early in the game, starting the game with an aggressive forecheck that would stifle the Wolves in their own zone. With the pressure on, the Steelheads tested Sudbury’s Troy Timpano early in the game; however the second year goalie stood his ground to keep the game scoreless. Brennan would not see very many shots early on, however looked sharp when called upon, including on a Steelheads penalty kill midway through the period. Sudbury finally broke the scoreless tie at the 7:35 mark of the period, as Pavel Jenys floated a shot on net that slipped behind Brennan; Reagan O’Grady and David Zeppieri picked up assist on the opening goal. The marker would stand as the lone one in the opening frame as the teams headed to the locker rooms, giving Sudbury a 1-0 lead despite Mississauga edging the Wolves on shots, 11-9.

Looking to tie the game early in the second, the Trout found a great opportunity as Jonathan Duchesne headed to the penalty box. Unfortunately for Mississauga, their best chances would not come until the late stages f the power play, Brandon Devlin and former-Wolf Stefan LeBlanc both had great shots at Timpano. Sudbury would respond immediately after the man advantage however, turning their offensive pressure up. Jenys nearly found the back of the net for the second time, however his shot rang a post before Mississauga would give up another power play opportunity. This time, Sudbury took full advantage with Jacob Harris making a great move to dance around Brennan and find the back of the net. Mississauga’s special teams would respond just under five minutes later, as they broke their goose egg with Sean Day walking in beat Timpano on a Steelheads advantage. Jimmy Lodge picked up the lone assist on the Steelheads’ opening marker, sending the Trout to the intermission trailing by one goal.

With a very abbreviated power play to start the final frame, Mississauga would attack the Sudbury zone right off of the opening faceoff. Sudbury’s Brody Silk returned to the ice to put the teams back at even strength, however it took only 11 seconds for Bryson Cianfrone to tie the game after finishing a passing play from Josh Burnside and Sam Babintsev. With momentum swinging in their favour, Day would show both sides of his game, laying a huge hit before walking in alone with another great scoring chance. While Timpano would find success turning Day away, he would have no such luck with Nathan Bastian standing on his doorstep at 6:51 of the period. Jimmy Lodge took a pass from Bobby MacIntyre before finding Bastian, who banged home his 11th of the season, and team-high 4th against the Sudbury Wolves this season. The Trout would not let up with the lead, as MacIntyre, Lodge and Jared Walsh all found themselves with great opportunities late in the game. Riding momentum from Timpano’s strong play between the pipes, Sudbury found their final chance to tie the game as Jenys broke in on a late breakaway; Brennan was up to the task however, turning away the opportunity to seal the Steelheads’ 20th victory of the season. The victory vaulted the Steelheads to 7th place in the Eastern Conference, while Sudbury’s loss was their 16th straight.
