Scheifele with five points as Colts edge IceDogs

ST. CATHARINES, Ont. - Mark Scheifele's five-point game lifted the Barrie Colts to a 6-5 victory over the host Niagara IceDogs in Ontario Hockey League action Sunday afternoon.

Scheifele's third goal of the game, and second on the power play, with 3:38 left in the third period proved to be the game-winner.

We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
