It was a day Mark Visentin could be happy for himself and his long-time teammate Andrew Agozzino.

Visentin made 15 saves to earn his league-leading seventh shutout of the season as the Niagara IceDogs blanked the host Brampton Battalion 3-0 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League action.

"Last time we played here, I got lit up pretty good so this is redemption for me in a way," said Visentin, who recorded his eighth straight victory.

The 19-year-old netminder allowed six goals on 27 shots in a 6-1 defeat in his previous outing against the Battalion.

Agozzino scored a goal and added an assist for the IceDogs (30-15-3), who jumped Brampton for top spot in the Central Division standings, while Brett Ritchie and Steven Shipley had a goal apiece.

Agozzino's goal was his 30th of the season and 149th all time in a Niagara uniform, setting a new franchise record.

"It was great to see Andrew get the record. He's such a key part of this team," Visentin added.

Visentin and Agozzino have spent their entire junior career playing together for the IceDogs.

Battalion (27-13-9) goalie Matej Machovsky turned aside 26 shots in a losing effort.

Niagara went 0 for 3 with the man advantage while Brampton failed to earn any power-play opportunities.

Elsewhere in the OHL, it was: Kitchener 5, Guelph 3; Sarnia 2, Kingston 1; Sudbury 4, Mississauga 1; Ottawa 3, Owen Sound 1; Oshawa 5, Peterborough 2 and Plymouth 4 Sault Ste. Marie 3 (SO).

At Brampton, Ont., Ritchie opened the scoring 10:03 into the first period.

Agozzino added one more goal at 13:45 to make it 2-0 Niagara after 20 minutes of play.

After a scoreless second period, Shipley scored 58 seconds into the third to secure an IceDogs victory.
