OTTAWA (CP) - Michael Swift registered a hat trick and added an assist as the Mississauga IceDogs won their seventh game in a row, a 6-3 victory over the Ottawa 67's in Ontario Hockey League action Sunday.
Swift's first two goals, his 29th and 30th of the season, came just 27 seconds apart in the first period and he completed the hat trick on the power play in the third.
Alex Pietrangelo, Jean-Michel Rizk and Jordan Owens, with a shorthanded goal while Ottawa had a two-man advantage also scored for Mississauga (37-17-0-2).
Owens' goal provided the killer touch after the 67's had cut a 4-1 deficit to 4-3 in the third period.
"That was a backbreaker," Swift said. "Any time you get scored on five-on-three, that changes the momentum of the game. That was the game right there. When we scored that we knew we just had to stay out of the box and keep it deep."
Chris Lawrence set up three goals and Oskar Osala added two assists. Andrew Loverock made 44 saves to pick up the win in goal.
Derek Joslin had a goal and two assists and Matt Lahey and Jamie McGinn each scored and set up a goal for Ottawa (24-29-0-3), which lost its fifth straight game.
