Trout "Barrie'd" by Colts

February 28, 2015 – Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Mississauga Steelheads

MISSISSAUGA, ON — With the end of the 2014-15 regular season quickly approaching, the Mississauga Steelheads looked to snap their losing streak on Saturday night. With the Peterborough Petes leading the Trout for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, a win was crucial for Mississauga to stay in the running with both teams in action.

Cameron Zanussi and Mackenzie Blackwood would be heavily relied on in a wide-open start to the game, as both came up big with the Steelheads and Colts exchanging chances early on. Cordell James would be the first on the board, giving the Colts a 1-0 lead at 3:10 of the first period as his one timer snuck past “Zeus” on the short side. Mississauga’s first chance to respond would come a couple of minutes later as a great effort by Michael McLeod nearly tied the game on the powerplay. Mississauga would sustain the pressure beyond the two-minute advantage as Jimmy Lodge led the buzzing Trout on the attack. Despite the attacking Steelheads, it was Barrie who found the next marker of the game with a man advantage, as Joseph Blandisi’s 48th goal of the season extended the Barrie lead at 14:41 of the period. The momentum would swing into Barrie’s favour following the second goal, however a number of big saves by Zanussi kept the game at 2-0, including a string of Colts breakaway opportunities.

Barrie would pick up where they left off in the second period, as Brendan Lemieux tapped in a pass from Kevin Labanc just 49 seconds into the period. Following a successful penalty kill, Nathan Bastian would pull the Trout back within two goals as he picked up a rebound in front of the net and backhanded it past Blackwood; Adam Donnelly and Jared Walsh picked up assist on the play. The pendulum would swing back into Mississauga’s favour following the goal, as they nearly came close shortly after, leading Josh Carrick to take a penalty and send the Trout to the power play. The advantage would be cut short however, as Mississauga was whistled for a penalty of their own. Again, Zanussi shone for the Trout, turning away another string of Colts chances, frustrating Blandisi, Lemieux and the Colts’ top line. Barrie would eventually take advantage of another power play, as Lemieux found the back of the next with under 3 to go in the period to make it 4-1 for the Colts.

Despite starting the third period with a man advantage, it was Barrie who came out flying early, as Zanussi was forced to make another big breakaway save. The Steelheads 6th powerplay opportunity would come shortly after, and it was Bastian finding the back of the net again, this time from Lodge and Stefan LeBLanc. Riding this momentum, the Steelheads would carry the pressure onto another power play shortly after, but Blackwood would be up to the task this time around to keep the two-goal lead in tact. Midway through the period, Justin Scott would make it a 5-2 game for the Colts, and the marker would stand as the final goal of the game. Despite a physical finish, Mississauga would not be able to generate any more offense, falling to the Colts at the Barrie Molson Centre.
