Brace's two goals spark Majors to 6-0 win over slumping Generals @NHLdotcom

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Sophomore Riley Brace scored a pair of goals and added an assist and goaltender JP Anderson posted his second shutout of the season, lifting the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors to a 6-0 win over the slumping Oshawa Generals in the Ontario Hockey League Friday night.

Brace also assisted on a goal by Jordan Mayer early in the third for Mississauga (36-13-5). Defencemen Tim Billingsley and Brett Flemming and forward Dustin Ekelman also scored for the Majors.

Anderson, ranked third among goalies in the OHL with a 2.53 goals-against average coming into the game, turned aside 20 shots for the shutout.

Brace scored a power-play goal in the first period and added an even-strength marker in the second, raising his season total to 15.

Michael Zador started in goal for the Generals (21-29-5) but he was pulled after giving up Ekelman's goal that put the Majors up 5-0 just before the seven-minute mark of the second period. Zador faced 23 shots before he was replaced by Kevin Baillie. Baillie allowed one goal on 10 shots.

Oshawa has now lost seven in a row.

"We played hard for 60 minutes and we want to show other teams that we're gearing up for the playoffs," said Brace. "We were able to put them (the Generals) in a hole early and we kept them down the whole game."
