Steelheads Preview: January 1

January 2, 2015

January 2, 2015 – Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Mississauga Steelheads

MISSISSAUGA, ON – The Mississauga Steelheads (17-17-1-0) finish off a busy week that saw five games in seven days with three in four days this weekend. The Trout will visit both ends of the OHL spectrum with a visit to the bottom of the East Division, while hosting the worst of the West and best of the Midwest.

First off, the Steelheads will head east to take on the East Division’s fifth-place Peterborough Petes (11-18-1-3) in a New Year’s Day matinee at 4:05 PM. It will be the third of four contests between the teams this season, and final matchup between the teams in Peterborough. While the Petes were victorious at home in the first game of the season series, the Steelheads responded with an impressive effort in November 23rd’s matchup, winning 5-1. Sam Babintsev paced the Trout with a four-point performance, while Jimmy Lodge, Bryson Cianfrone, and ex-Pete Brandon Devlin all posted multi-point efforts.

Thursday’s game will be the Petes’ second in as many days as they visit the Niagara IceDogs on New Year’s Eve.

The Steelheads will return home on Friday night as they play host to the Midwest Division-leading Erie Otters (25-7-1-2) for the first time since their preseason tilt in Oakville, Ontario. While it is the first home game of the season series for the Trout, it will be third game overall with the Otters having defended home ice in both games played in Erie. Cameron Zanussi got the start for the Trout, however a 15-shot first period by the Otters produced three goals, enough to put the Trout away on November 27th. Everett Clark had the lone Steelheads goal.

Erie will host the Guelph Storm on New Year’s Eve before heading to Mississauga for Friday night’s game. It will be the second of three games in four days, as the Otters heads home to host the Windsor Spitfires on the following night.

The final game of the weekend for the Steelheads will be a Sunday afternoon matinee, as the Windsor Spitfires (13-20-1-0) finish off their season series with the Steelheads at the Hershey Centre. Windsor snuck out a victory at home on October 25th, however the Steelheads were still able to come away with a point in the overtime loss. It was a back-and-forth affair as Cianfrone opened the scoring early in the game with his first of four point on the night, however Windsor would hold the lead three times before Babintsev sent the game to overtime with a tying marker in the third period.

Sunday’s matchup with the Spitfires will be the final game of a stretch that, like the Steelheads, sees them play five games in seven days.
