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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
