Mathias Niederberger's 49 saves lift Colts to 4-2 win over Frontenacs

BARRIE, Ont. - Mathias Niederberger made 49 saves as the Barrie Colts knocked off the Kingston Frontenacs 4-2 in Ontario Hockey League action Thursday night.

Zach Hall, Brendan Lemieux and Steven Beyers also struck for Barrie (43-19-4), which has now won seven games in a row.

Anthony Camara, who had just signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Boston Bruins, saw his point streak come to an end at 10 games.

Darcy Greenaway and Billy Jenkins replied for Kingston (26-35-5), which has now dropped five of its last six contests.

The Frontenacs, tied for eighth place in the Eastern Conference with 57 points, failed to gain any ground on the idle Peterborough Petes. The two teams play each other Friday night.

Barrie's top-ranked power play found success against Kingston’s 20th-ranked penalty kill, as the Colts went 1-for-5. The Frontenacs finished the night at 1-for-6.

Kingston's Mike Morrison turned aside 32 shots in defeat.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
