Steelheads Topple Wolves 5-1

December 7, 2014 – Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Mississauga Steelheads

Sudbury, ON – The Mississauga Steelheads closed out another busy weekend with a visit to Sudbury to take on their division rivals, the Wolves at the Sudbury Community Arena. The Trout were coming off a third period comeback win over the Plymouth Whalers who visited the Hershey Centre on Friday, while the Wolves were coming off a tough 7-2 loss to the Eastern Conference leading Oshawa Generals.

Martin and Timpano got the nods as the starting goalies, and the Steelheads welcomed Cody Thompson back to the line-up. Despite the early morning trip up North, the Steelheads came out flying in the first. Martin was tested early by Sudbury’s leading scorer, Nathan Pancel, but was up for the challenge. An early hooking penalty to Stefan LeBlanc put the Steelheads on the penalty kill. After winning the faceoff and breaking up a Wolves’ play at the blue line, Burnside jumped on the loose puck and beat Timpano with a backhanded shot to open the scoring. That shorthanded goal would be the 6th of the season for the Steelheads. Chad Heffernan took a penalty shortly after that would cancel out the Wolves’ power play opportunity. LeBlanc’s hooking penalty expired with Heffernan still in the box, giving the Steelheads their first power play opportunity of the game. Capitalizing on the man-advantage, Burnside would beat Timpano again to put the Steelheads up by 2. Bastian and Clark drew the assists on Burnside’s second of the game. Midway through the period, the Wolves found themselves in penalty trouble again as Cummins and Duchesne took back-to-back penalties for tripping and cross checking respectively. The Steelheads would take advantage again as Jimmy Lodge was on the doorstep to bury a rebound off a shot that ricocheted off the boards. Babintsev would extend the lead late in the period, giving the Trout a 4-goal cushion heading into the first intermission.

With the Steelheads scoring 4 goals on 12 shots in the first, Samuel Tanguay would step in to start the second for the Wolves. Sudbury would have an early power play opportunity as Lodge took a high-sticking penalty 43 seconds into the period. Schmalz had a good chance for the Wolves but couldn’t find the back of the net as his shot trickled across the blue ice and wide. Despite a number of chances, Martin stood tall and the Steelheads jumped on any rebounds to keep the Wolves off the board. Corbett would take a costly delay of game penalty at 6:04 of the period, and the Trout would capitalize again. Devlin pinched in to the faceoff circle and beat Tanguay glove side to extend Mississauga’s lead 5-0. Cianfrone and Burnside drew the assists on Devlin’s 9th of the season. Harris created the best opportunity for the Wolves late in the period to set up Heffernan, but Martin was there to shut him down.

Mississauga maintained their 5-goal lead for the majority of the third before Petaki finally solved Martin late in the game to put the Wolves on the board, and spoil the shutout. The Wolves would close out the period on the power play as Devlin took a late hooking penalty, but Petaki’s goal would be their only of the game. Martin faced 29 shots, while Burnside (2 goals, 1 assist) and Cianfrone (3 assists) each had 3-points in the 5-1 road victory.

The Steelheads have a light week before kicking off a 3 game weekend on Friday, December 12th when they host the North Bay Battalion at the Hershey Centre at 7:30 pm. Great tickets are still available for Friday and Sunday’s games next weekend online through Ticketmaster and at the Hershey Centre box office.
