Steelheads Unable to Complete Comeback

February 26, 2015 – Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Mississauga Steelheads

Niagara, ON – The Mississauga Steelheads entered tonight’s contest against their division rivals, the Niagara IceDogs, looking to snap a 6-game losing streak and sneak back into a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Heading into tonight, the Trout sat three points behind the Peterborough Petes and have played at least one more game than any team in the conference.

The IceDogs, who came into tonight’s game having won three of their past four, applied good pressure, testing Jacob Brennan early on. Mitchell Fitzmorris had a good early chance as he beat Brennan, but not the post. Moments later, Brendan Perlini would open the scoring as he notched his 23rd of the season. Aaron Haydon drew the lone assist on Perlini’s goal. Nick Zottl would serve two minutes for holding at 4:45, giving the IceDogs their first power play opportunity of the game. Brennan made a number of key saves to keep the IceDogs from extending their lead as the Steelheads successfully killed off Zottl’s penalty. Mississauga gathered some momentum near the end of the period but were unable to get on the board.

Graham Knott had a good chance for Niagara early in the second, but Brennan stuck with him and held the line to make the save. Sean Day would turn things the other way, leading a beautiful rush, weaving through a number of IceDogs, but he was unable to get a shot off. Close to the midway point of the period, Carter Verhaeghe would extend the IceDogs’ lead 2-0. Looking to get things going, Josh Burnside led a good short-handed rush but was unable to feed Bryson Cianfrone. Billy Jenkins would give the IceDogs a 3-goal lead with a minute to go in the period, but Sean Day would answer back just 12 seconds later to put the Trout on the board heading into the second intermission.

The third period saw a number of good chances at both ends before Mikey McLeod notched his 9th of the season to narrow the gap. Bobby MacIntyre and Sean Day drew the assists on McLeod’s goal. Looking to even things up, the Steelheads kept the pressure up, but a 3-on-1 the other way saw the IceDogs regain their 2-goal lead. With Brennan out of the net, Mississauga looked to get back into the game but couldn’t get anything going with the extra attacker. Niagara missed two empty net opportunities, but it wouldn’t matter as they held on for the 4-2 win.

The Steelheads travel to Barrie on Saturday before returning home to host the Sudbury Wolves on Sunday at the Hershey Centre.
