MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Dylan Smoskowitz scored a pair of goals to lead Mississauga Steelheads to a 5-2 victory over the visiting Niagara IceDogs in Friday's Ontario Hockey League tilt at the Hershey Centre.
Ryan Duhaime scored his first OHL goal for the Steelheads (20-14-3) while Brett Foy and Alex Cord also scored.
Steven Shipley and Aaron Haydon each found the scoresheet for the IceDogs (22-16-2).
Mississauga's Tyson Teichmann made 18 saves for the win while Christopher Festarini stopped 34 shots in a losing cause for Niagara.
The Steelheads went 1 for 4 on the power play while the IceDogs finished 0 for 2 on the man advantage.
Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
