Steelheads Swim Past Petes

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

Mississauga, ON – The Steelheads returned to the Pond on Sunday for an afternoon matinee versus the Peterborough Petes.” For two Steelheads, this afternoon’s game would be their first chance to make an impression in front of the fans at the Hershey Centre. Jimmy Lodge was acquired from Saginaw on Friday, and Justin Bean was acquired from Belleville. In the early goings of the first, Mikey McLeod had a burst of speed down the wing and made a nice move to get to the front of the net, but was stripped of the puck. McLeod continued to use his speed to his advantage, drawing a hooking penalty to give the Trout their first power play of the day. The Steelheads maintained possession for the vast majority of the man advantage and came close, but couldn’t convert on the opportunity. Mississauga went back to the power play 12 minutes into the frame. Just 35 seconds into the man advantage, Bryson Cianfrone fed Brandon Devlin on the point, who wristed home his 7th of the season off the post and in. 1:15 later, the Trout struck again as Lucas Venuto cleaned up a rebound created by a blocked shot. Mississauga trailed on the shot clock 10-11, but led 2-0 where it mattered most.

Penalized early in the second, Mississauga was shorthanded for the second time in the game. Peterborough got on the board on the power play. The Trout would get redemption on a power play of their own as Lodge scored his second goal in as many games, squeaking the puck through Matthew Mancina’s five-hole. The Petes continued their penalty trouble, giving the Steelheads their 5th power play of the afternoon. Mancina was forced to make several big saves on the chance. As the penalty expired, the Petes were unable to clear the zone and Sam Babintsev finished off a beautiful passing play between Devlin and Lodge. While short-handed, Cianfrone shot at the pad of Manicna creating a rebound that Babintsev picked up and backhanded a shot off the post. The two Steelheads connected on another short-handed chance and this time made no mistake. Cianfrone fed Babintsev behind the net, who snuck it five-hole on Mancina on the wrap-around for his second goal of the game. Fresh out of the box, Jason Smith was sprung on a partial break only to be hauled down, and awarded a penalty shot. Smith tried to make a move to the backhand, but Manicina was with him the whole way to make the save. The Steelheads would take a sizeable lead into the third, but would start the period on the penalty kill.

The Petes had a couple of chances in the first five minutes of the third period, but Spencer Martin was on his game, turning away 40 of 41 shots on the day. On the power play, a turnover at the offensive blue line gave Michael Clarke a short-handed breakaway, but Martin shut the door to preserve Mississauga’s four-goal lead. The Steelheads continued their dominant play over Peterborough during the game and cruised to victory with a final score of 5-1.
