It's a clean sweep.

The Barrie Colts routed the North Bay Battalion 6-0 on Thursday evening, ending their Ontario Hockey League Eastern Conference semi-final series in four games. They will now face the Niagara IceDogs in the Eastern Conference final.

Calgary Flames prospect Andrew Mangiapane led the way in the Game Four drubbing of the Battalion, scoring twice and finishing up his night with four points and first star honours.

The forward, who turned 20 earlier this month, set up the game's first goal when his rebound was collected by a trailing Giordano Finoro and fired into the back of the net.

Late in the first period, Mangiapane picked up his second helper of the evening with an assist on linemate Kevin Lebanc's tally that made it a 2-0 affair after 20 minutes.

In the second period, Rasmus Andersson set up Mangiapane for his first goal of the game when he sent a stretch pass up the ice and hit the winger in the slot. Mangiapane slipped the shot underneath North Bay netminder Jake Smith to make it 3-0.

At the 6:38 mark of the final frame, Mangiapane extended the Colts' lead to 4-0 when he rifled a shot past Smith for his eighth goal of the postseason.

Andersson registered his second assist of the night on the Colt's sixth goal, coming on the power play in the final minute of the game.

Mangiapane is second in team scoring in the playoffs with eight goals and 17 points in 11 games. He was sixth in the OHL scoring race in the regular season with 51 goals and 106 points through 59 contests.

The Flames inked the Bolton, ON product to an entry-level contract on Mar. 23. They drafted him in the sixth round of the 2015 NHL Draft.

Andersson is tied for the lead in points among OHL defencemen in the postseason with 13 through 11 skates. He also led all rearguards in the regular season with 60 points in 64 games.

The Swede signed an entry-level deal with the Flames last September. He was taken in the second round of last summer's draft, 53rd overall.
