MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Josh Burnside scored the game-winning goal on a power play with 51 seconds left in regulation to lead the Mississauga Steelheads to a 2-1 victory over the visiting Belleville Bulls on Sunday afternoon in Ontario Hockey League playoff action.

Damian Bourne also scored for the Steelheads, who now trail in the Eastern Conference first-round series two games to one, while Dylan DeMelo assisted on both of his team's goals.

Tyler Graovac scored the lone goal for the top-seeded Bulls, who split the season series with eighth-seeded Mississauga at two games apiece.

Mississauga's Tyson Teichmann backed his team with 31 saves while Belleville's Malcolm Subban turned aside 23 shots.

The Steelheads finished 1 for 6 on the power play while the Bulls failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Game 4 is set for Tuesday when Mississauga hosts Belleville at the Hershey Centre.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
