Niagara's Chris Festarini makes 31 saves as IceDogs defeat Steelheads 3-2

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

Broderick Kelly's point shot 1:10 into the third period beat Tyson Teichmann for what proved to be the game-winner. Dougie Hamilton and Mike Robinson had the other IceDogs goals.

Teichmann made 32 stops in the loss as Mississauga fell to 2-3-0 on the young season.

Niagara improved to 4-1-0 with the victory.

The Steelheads went 0-for 4 with the man-advantage, while the IceDogs were 0-for-2.

Mississauga acquired goaltender Clint Windsor from Windsor in a trade earlier in the day. He dressed as Teichmann's backup.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
