The visiting Mississauga Steelheads were coming off a 3-2 win over Sudbury on Friday but were denied another win by the Soo Greyhounds on their northern swing. With Raaymakers between the pipes, the Steelheads fired 31 shots with only one getting past the net minder in the last half of the third period.
The Greyhounds would take control of the game from the onset and in the first period it would take approximately 10 and a half minutes before Mississauga would register their first shot on goal. Jared McCann would get the first goal for the Greyhounds at 7:52 and Blake Speers would get the second, which would eventually be the game winning goal.
Anthony DeAngelo would add another goal to the Greyhounds’ tally and Jared McCann would round out the first period scoring at 16:04 giving the Soo a 4-0 lead. The Steelheads would make a goalie change after the fourth goal replacing Zanussi, who stopped 9 of the 13 shots on goal, with Brennan who would stop the remaining 11 shots for the first period.
For the second period Mississauga bounced back having a number of scoring chances on Raaymakers but Keigan Goetz would get the lone marker for the Greyhounds during the period increasing the lead to 5-0 for the Greyhounds over the Steelheads.
After being denied a goal against North Bay on Friday, Michael Bunting would put the puck behind Brennan early in the third period to give the Greyhounds a commanding lead of 6-0. With only a few seconds left in Bunting’s penalty Mississauga’s Stefan LeBlanc would score on the power play at 6:33 to break Raaymakers shut-out.
Blake Speers would get a feed from Tim Gettinger to give the Soo Greyhounds a six goal lead over the Mississauga Steelheads with the score of 7-1. The Greyhounds fired a total of 48 shots on goal while the Steelheads only had 31 shots on goal.
The Greyhounds will start a two game road trip with the first on Thursday in Niagara and the second on Friday in Erie
