NORTH BAY, Ont. - Jamie Lewis scored the winner with 5:33 left to play as the North Bay Battalion edged the Oshawa Generals 3-2 on Wednesday to sweep their Ontario Hockey League playoff series.

Alex Henriksson and Marcus McIvor also scored as North Bay won the OHL's Eastern Conference final. Jake Smith made 31 saves for the win.

Dylan Smoskowitz and Michael Dal Colle supplied the offence for Oshawa, while Ken Appleby stopped 25 shots.

Henriksson scored on the power play as the Battalion went 1 for 2 with the man advantage. The Generals went 1 for 4 on the power play.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
