OHL Playoffs - Day 6

Mississauga 4 Belleville 4 - Mississauga wins series 4-0 (prediction - Mississauga 4-0)

It was the JP Anderson show once again, recording his third consecutive shutout of the series. Remarkably, he only allowed 1 goal the entire series way back in game 1.

Maxim Kitsyn scored once and added an assist as did Devante Smith-Pelly. Justin Shugg had 2 assists on the night.

While Belleville goes home now, Mississauga awaits their next opponent. Shockingly, it could very well be the Sudbury Wolves.


Niagara 5 Brampton 1 - Niagara lead series 3-0

Mark Visentin was rock solid in goal again as he stopped 35 of 35 shots for the Ice Dogs and leading his team to a commanding 3-0 lead in their best of seven series.

Only Zach Bell was able to beat Visentin on this night. For Niagara, Alex Friesen and Dougie Hamilton had 2 assists each while Ryan Strome had 1 and Jason Wilson had a goal and a helper.

About the only thing we know for certain is the Ice Dogs won't be facing the Majors in the next round.


Kingston 7 Oshawa 4 - Oshawa leads series 3-1

Kingston lived to fight another day !!

Rookie goalie Nathan Perry stopped 34 of 38 shots in his first full OHL playoff game while Peter DiSalvo was pulled for Oshawa after allowing 5 goals on 28 shots.

Nicklas Jensen was held pointless for Oshawa while fellow draft eligibles Lucas Lessio and Boone Jenner had a goal each.

For Kingston, Nathan Moon (playing through injury) had 3 goals, while Ethen Werek playing in only his second game back since his suspension had 3 assists. Ryan Spooner added a goal and an assist for the winners.


Sudbury 5 Ottawa 4 OT - Sudbury leads series 3-0.

Can we possibly have an upset in the making here?

Trailing 4-2, and looking tired and sluggish, the Wolves mounted a comeback. Defenseman Josh MacFadden scored his 2nd of the night to pull Sudbury within one goal on the power play. Then with 17:52 left in the third, Adam Sedlak of the 67's took an interference penalty to put the Wolves on the power play.

With 16 seconds left, MacFadden scored his 3rd of the night to force the game into overtime. It only took Mike Lumas 33 seconds into the extra session to complete the comeback and give Sudbury a commanding and yet unthinkable 3-0 series lead.


Owen Sound 5 London 3 - Owen Sound leads series 2-1

Michael Houser didn't have as many shots to face as earlier in the series, but he had to make some difficult saves in stopping 30 of 34 shots. His Attack counterpart Jordan Binnington, stopped 17 of 20 for the win.

London was up 3-1 and in control of this game until captain Stephen Sanza went down with an injury and had to leave the game. Sanza had been able to limit joey Hishon to just 2 assists in the previous 2 games.

With Sanza out of the game, it opened up some room for Hishon who got the game tying goal in the 3rd before Jessie Blacker scored the eventual winner. Blacker finished with a goal and 2 assists.

Seth Griffith had a goal and an assist while Vladislav Namestnikov had 2 assists for the Knights. All 3 of London's goals came on the power play.

Special teams played a huge role in this game with 25 man power advantages on the night. London was 3-13 on the PP while Owen Sound was 2-12.
