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.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
