Machac scores shootout winner as the Battalion edge the Steelheads

BRAMPTON, Ont. - Patrik Machac scored in the seventh round of the shootout as the Brampton Battalion edged the Mississauga Steelheads 3-2 in Ontario Hockey League action on Friday night.

Mississauga jumped out to a 1-0 lead 22 seconds into the game when Dylan Smoskowitz pounced on a rebound in the slot off a Stuart Percy shot from the blue line.

The Steelheads (25-32-7) added to their lead less than two minutes into the second period on a two-man advantage when Trevor Carrick blasted home a one-timer from the point.

The Battalion (30-24-9) pulled to within one less than five minutes later when Matt MacLeod redirected Zach Bell’s wrist shot from the point.

Barclay Goodrow tied the game five minutes into the third period, setting the stage for the shootout where Machac beat Spencer Martin on his forehand. Matej Machovsky then denied Lucas Venuto to seal the win.

Machovsky turned aside 22 of the 24 shots sent his way as Martin stopped 27 shots in defeat.

Brampton failed to capitalize on three opportunities with the man advantage while Mississauga went 1 for 3 on the power play.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
