Smoskowtiz scores winner as the Steelheads edge the Petes 2-1

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Dylan Smoskowtiz scored the game-winning goal late in the third period as the Mississauga Steelheads downed the visiting Peterborough Petes 2-1 on Sunday afternoon in Ontario Hockey League action.

Andres Kopstals scored his first career goal for Mississauga (13-5-1), which has won eight of its last 10 outings.

Steven Trojanovic scored the only goal for Peterborough (4-14-3), which dropped its seventh straight game.

Tyson Teichmann made 27 saves for the win while Michael Giugovaz stopped 28 shots in a losing cause.

The game was scoreless until Kopstals broke the deadlock 3:08 into the third period. He was in the right position to collect a big rebound after Brett Foy fired a slap shot on Giugovaz on a 2-on-1.

Trojanovic tied the game during a power play with 4:03 remaining, however Smoskowitz responded with a wrist shot past Giuogovaz 18 seconds later.

The Steelheads went 0-for-3 on the power play while the Petes finished 1-for-2.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
