Wind scores winnner as Battalion come from behind to edge IceDogs

BRAMPTON, Ont. - The Brampton Battalion scored twice in the third period as they came from behind to beat the visiting Niagara IceDogs 2-1 on Sunday afternoon in Ontario Hockey League action.

Matt MacLeod tied the game from the side of the net at 2:42 for the Battalion (22-18-8) and Cameron Wind scored the eventual winner at 5:23 with a shot from the point.

Wind's goal was his first of the season and puts Brampton two points ahead of Niagara for fifth in the Eastern Conference and second in the Central Division.

"It’s a huge win for us today," said MacLeod. "As we get deeper into the season, these game against division rivals become four-pointers."

After a scoreless first period, Ryan Strome opened the scoring for the IceDogs (23-22-4) after sliding a low shot past Matej Machovsky at 15:26 of the second.

Machovsky stopped 19-of-20 shots for the win as Brent Moran made 30 saves in a losing cause.

Brampton went 0 for 1 with the man advantage while Niagara went the entire game without a power-play opportunity.

The loss pushes Niagara's winless streak to seven games.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
