BRAMPTON, Ont. - Goaltender Patrick Killeen stopped 25 shots as the Brampton Battalion skated to a 5-1 post-season victory over the Kingston Frontenacs in Ontario Hockey League play Sunday afternoon.

Vancouver Canucks prospect Cody Hodgson scored a short-handed marker to cap off Brampton's offence. Craig Moore, Philip Lane, Sam Carrick and Matt MacLeod chipped in as well.

Killeen's 1.50 GAA is the lowest in the OHL playoffs thus far.

Kaine Geldart was the lone scorer for the Frontenacs, while Tyler Beskorowany made 32 saves.

Moore opened scoring at 4:23 of the first period, with Lane and Carrick tallying at 14:08 and 16:31 respectively, to give the Battalion a 3-0 lead after one period.

The offensive onslaught continued at 11:14 of the second when Michael Santini chipped the puck over to McLeod who lifted a backhanded shot past Beskorowany.

Kaine Geldart put Kingston on the board at 15:32 of the second to reduce the deficit to three after 40 minutes.

Playing short handed in the later stages of the third period, Cody Hodgson scored a highlight-reel goal, beating Beskorowany with a backhand from his knees after fighting off a checker.

Brampton leads the series 2-0. Kingston will host Game 3 Tuesday night.
