Burnside scores twice as the Steelheads beat the Generals 5-3

OSHAWA, Ont. - Josh Burnside scored twice, including the game winner, as the Mississauga Steelheads downed the host Oshawa Generals 5-3 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League play.

After finding himself alone in front of Oshawa's net, Burnside beat goaltender Daniel Altshuller five-hole with a backhand at 12:42 of the third period to put his club ahead 4-3.

Dylan Smoskowitz and Dylan DeMelo had a goal and an assist apiece for the Steelheads (16-6-1) while Stuart Percy chipped in with three assists.

Andrew Goldberg scored a single goal to round out Mississauga's scoring.

Boone Jenner scored twice for the Generals (12-10-3) and Trevor Morbeck scored the other.

Tyson Teichmann stopped 31-of-34 shots for the win while Altshuller turned away 22 shots in a losing cause.

Mississauga went 1-for-5 on the power play while Oshawa went 1-for-3.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
