MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Dylan Smoskowitz scored a pair of goals to lead the Mississauga Steelheads to a 5-2 victory over the Belleville Bulls in Game 4 of their Ontario Hockey League Eastern Conference quarter-final series Tuesday night.

Riley Brace, Josh Burnside and Andres Kopstals each scored a goal and an assist for the eighth-seeded Steelheads, who overcame a 2-0 deficit in the second period to tie the best-of-seven series 2-2.

Joseph Cramarossa opened the scoring 11 seconds after the opening face off and Jake Cardwell made it 2-0 for the No. 1 Bulls with a power-play goal early in the second.

Smoskowitz cut the lead to 2-1 at 4:08 before Brace tied the game five minutes later in the second.

Smoskowitz scored the eventual winner with a second-period power play at 16:31.

Steelheads goalie Tyson Teichmann finished with 25 saves while Malcolm Subban stopped 16 shots for the Bulls.

Mississauga finished 2-for-3 on the power play while Belleville went 1-for-6.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
