OHL Playoffs - Day 4

Niagara 2 Brampton 0 - Niagara leads series 2-0

Mark Visentin stopped all 24 shots to earn the shutout and Niagara won 2-0 to take the series lead by the same 2-0.

Ryan Strome scored the game's opening goal, and the game winner while Freddie Hamilton scored the other. Dougie Hamilton assisted on Strome's goal with a beauty of a pass and was physical throughout the game.

Brampton couldn't muster much offense with Niagara's stifling defence that forced them offside time and time again. However, defenseman Spencer Abraham had a solid game for the Batallion. He was strong in his own zone and moved the puck well.


Mississauga 2 Belleville 0 - Mississauga leads series 3-0

JP Anderson stopped all 19 shots he faced for his second consecutive shutout in this series. Malcom Subban, who started in place of Tyson Teichmann once again, stopped 34 of 35 shots and being named the games second star.

Maxim Kitsyn scored in the 2nd to give Mississauga the lead and Riley Brace added the empty netter. Marc Cantin assisted on both goals.


Guelph 6 Saginaw 2 - Series tied 1-1

Guelph returned home and dominated this game to even the sreies up, beginning with Brandon Foote in goal who made 32 saves for the victory.

Michael Latta led the way offensively with 3 assists, Peter Holland had 2, and Zach Mitchell and Cody McNaughton had a goal and assist each. 6'4" Russian import Andrey Pedan also had 2 assists.

For Saginaw, Brandon Saad had an assist while Vincent Trocheck was held off the board.


Oshawa 5 Kingston 4 - Oshawa leads series 3-0

Philipp Grubauer is still out with an illness. Franky Palazzese was over worked and not to mention he couldn't dress because of a hip injury. Enter a very raw rookie in Nathan Perry. Could he stop the Oshawa onslaught?

Perry stopped 26 of 31 shots but it just wasn't enough for Kingston to pull out a victory. Erik Gudbranson did what he could for Kingston, scoring once and adding 2 assists. Aandy Andreaoff did the same for Oshawa.

The Great Dane - Nicklas Jensen added 2 goals for Oshawa giving him 4 goals and 6 points in 3 playoff games. Boone Jenner and Lucas Lessio were both held off the score sheet.
