Povorozniouk scores SO winner as the Frontenacs edge the Steelheads

KINGSTON, Ont. - Sam Povorozniouk scored the shootout winner as the Kingston Frontenacs edged the visitng Mississauga Steelheads 2-1 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Povorozniuouk showed off some fancy stickhandling to get Mississauga goalie Tyson Teichmann out of position before sliding the puck in the net for the winner.

Kingston goalie Mike Morrison stopped all three Mississauga shooters in the shootout and 27 shots through regulation and overtime for the victory while Teichmann made 40 saves in the loss.

Sam Babintsev opened the scoring for the Steelheads (17-11-2), who are winless in six outings, when he deflected a Spencer Cobbold wrist shot past Morrison.

The Frontenacs (17-14-1) responded later in the first when Spencer Watson collected a rebound and beat Teichmann on a wrap around.

Kingston controlled play in the second period, outshooting Mississauga 12-5 and looked to have taken the lead when Slater Doggett put the puck past Teichmann, however it was ruled off as the referee had already blown his whistle.

The teams traded chances in the third period, but neither could take advantage. Teichmann weathered a late push by the Frontenacs to send the game to overtime.

Neither club could produce on the power play as Kingston went 0 for 3 and Mississauga 0 for 1.

That's the biggest goal I've ever scored. It's a great feeling any time you do that, especially at home. We're one game away from a Stanley Cup berth. It was a huge goal and it felt unbelievable.
