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's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
