MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Goaltender Trevor Cann turned in a brilliant performance for his first shutout of the season and Tony Romano scored a second-period power-play goal as the Peterborough Petes blanked the Mississauga-St. Michael's Majors 1-0 Friday night in the Ontario Hockey League.

Cann turned back 39 shots en route to his shutout as the Petes (4-6-0-0) won their second game in as many nights and also ended Mississauga's (4-2-0-0) four-game winning streak.

"Given our record this year, we needed the last couple of wins," said the 19-year-old netminder. "That was enough motivation for me. They (the Majors) had quite a few chances but it's my job to stop them.

"They had a lot of point shots that were tough to see but you just have to battle through them and find the puck."

Romano's goal was his third of the season and came late in the second period while the Petes enjoyed a man advantage. Romano came out from the corner with the puck, skated into the slot and beat Mississauga rookie goalie JP Anderson with a 15-foot wrist shot.

Anderson, making his third start of the season, made 21 saves.
