ST. CATHARINES, Ont. - Matej Machovsky made 30 saves as the Brampton Battalion beat the Niagara IceDogs 5-2 in Ontario Hockey League action Thursday night.

Barclay Goodrow scored his team-leading 36th goal of the season early in the third period on the power play for Brampton (32-25-9). It proved to be the game-winner. Zach Bell, Brenden Miller, Matt McLeod and Brendan Childerley also scored for the Battalion.

Steven Shipley and Brett Ritchie, with his team-leading 41st of the season, replied for the IceDogs (30-32-4).

Shipley's first period goal was his 16th power-play goal of the season, setting a Niagara IceDogs franchise record.

Chris Festarini turned aside 24 shots in the loss.

Brampton finished the game 2 for 3 on the power play, while Niagara was 1 for 5.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
