Zach Hall scores his second goal of the game in OT, Colts edge Generals 4-3

BARRIE, Ont. - Zach Hall scored his second goal of the game 1:18 into overtime as the Barrie Colts defeated the Oshawa Generals 4-3 Wednesday in the opening game of their Ontario Hockey League Eastern Conference semifinal.

Mark Scheifele and Steven Beyers also scored for Barrie.

Scheifele is riding a five-game goal-scoring streak in the playoffs.

Michael Dal Colle, Scott Sabourin and Bradley Latour replied for the Generals.

Dal Colle opened the scoring for Oshawa and Scheifele tied it midway through the first period.

A short-handed goal by Latour and an even strength goal by Sabourin gave the Generals a 3-1 lead in the second period.

Barrie tied the game in the third period with a goal from Beyers at 15:08, and a power play goal from Hall at 16:41.

Barrie, which had the OHL's best power play in the regular season, went 1 for 7, while the Generals finished 0 for 3.

Mathias Niederberger turned aside 40 shots for the Colts, while Oshawa’s Daniel Althsuller made 32 saves.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
