Peterborough Petes goaltender Trevor Cann did everything but score the winning goal against the Mississauga-St. Michael's Majors.
Cann stopped 39 shots en route to his first shutout of the season as the Petes won their second game in as many nights, a 1-0 victory that also ended Mississauga's four-game winning streak in Ontario Hockey League action Friday night.
"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."
Tony Romano scored the only goal of the game, a second-period power-play goal for Peterborough (4-6-0-0). Romano came out from the corner with the puck, skated into the slot and beat rookie netminder JP Anderson with a 15-foot wrist shot. It was his third goal of the season.
