MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Corey Bureau had a goal and an assist and Devante Smith-Pelly added a pair of assists as the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors extended their winning streak to six games with a 4-3 victory over the Peterborough Petes in the Ontario Hockey League Friday night.

Bureau scored his fourth goal of the season with 12 seconds remaining in the second period and set up Rob Flick for his fifth goal of the campaign six minutes earlier for the Majors (11-3-0).

"It's good to get a couple of points," said the 18-year-old Bureau. "Anything to help the team. We're building a lot of confidence right now. The big thing about this team is our depth. When one line struggles, there's someone else who can come along and pick it up."

Smith-Pelly, who had a four-goal night a week ago against Ottawa, picked up an assist on Bureau's goal and defenceman Blake Parlett's goal early in the third. Dustin Ekelman had the other Mississauga goal, an unassisted short-handed effort in the second period that tied the game 1-1.

Justin Larson, Matt Puempel and Pat Daley found the net for the Petes (8-9-0).

Chris Carrozzi stopped 22 shots in the Mississauga net for his sixth win of the season. Peterborough netminder Andrew D'Agostini made 27 saves.
