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

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

Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.
