ST. CATHARINES, Ont. - Chris Festarini made 31 saves Thursday as the Niagara IceDogs downed the Mississauga Steelheads 3-2 in the Ontario Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player and this is the place to do it.
