Steelheads Preview: December 28

December 24, 2014
By

December 23, 2014 – Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Mississauga Steelheads

The Mississauga Steelheads moved into sixth place last weekend, as they won back-to-back games in the shootout, leap-frogging the Ottawa 67’s in the Eastern Conference standings. The 67’s have a game in hand on the Trout, but trail by three points. Mississauga has found success time and time again in shootouts this season.

By beating Sudbury, they improved to a perfect 4-0 and moved into first in the league in the skills competition. They remain one of only three undefeated teams in shootouts, and of those three are the only team to have participated in more than one shootout.

The Steelheads broke their home losing streak last Sunday against the visiting Sudbury Wolves. Though it was a close game, Mississauga continued their dominant play over Sudbury this season, improving to 3-0. The Trout headed into the Christmas break on a high note, winning back-to-back games and earning four of a possible six points on the weekend.

Mississauga has been in third place in the Central Division for much of the season, but headed into the break only five points out of first. Both the North Bay Battalion and the Barrie Colts have proven difficult for the Steelheads, but if they can improve their record against these teams in the second half of the season, Mississauga would make up crucial ground in the standings.

On Sunday, the Niagara IceDogs visit the Hershey Centre for the fourth and last time this season. In three games, the Steelheads are 2-1 against the IceDogs, winning the first two and dropping the most recent matchup. Although the IceDogs had a very lackluster start to the season, they pose more of a threat to opposing teams as they have added some key players to their roster.

The Steelheads are 5-4 in the month of December and come into this game with some momentum, having won two straight including their most recent home game.

The Trout will make the trek to Sudbury on Tuesday, to take on the Wolves for the second time in nine days. During their last visit to the Sudbury Community Arena, the Steelheads won handily by a score of 5-2.

Josh Burnside had two goals in the affair, including a shorthanded marker. Mississauga is 3-0 against Sudbury this season, but their most recent meeting at the Hershey Centre was the closest game yet. The Trout fell behind on the scoreboard four times, but managed to tie it up late in the third, and outlasted the Wolves in a shootout.
