NHL.com @NHL

The Brampton Battalion's six-game winning streak was snapped by the last team they'd want to lose points to.

Steven Beyers scored once in regulation and then had the shoot-out winner as the Barrie Colts beat division rival Brampton 4-3 in Ontario Hockey League action Thursday.

Colin Behenna had a goal and two assists for Barrie (20-13-3) while Alex Lepkowski scored the other.

Sam Carrick had two goals and an assist for Brampton (20-11-4) and Ian Watters added a goal and an assist.

Mathias Niederberger made his first start since returning from representing Germany at the division one world junior championships ? one tier below the world junior hockey championships currently taking place in Alberta ? where he was named the tournament's top goaltender. He turned aside 24 shots for the win while Matej Machovsky made 24 saves in a losing cause.

Barrie and Brampton both went 1 for 6 on the power play.

The victory moves the Colts within two points of the Battalion for top spot in the Central Division.

Elsewhere in the OHL, it was: Belleville 6, Sault Ste. Marie 5; Kitchener 3, Windsor 2; and Peterborough 5, Erie 2.

At Barrie, Ont., the Battalion jumped out to a 2-0 first period lead with goals from Watters and Carrick.

Beyers cut the lead in half with a power-play goal with just 18 seconds remaining in the period, making it a 2-1 game heading into the second.

Lepkowski tied the game for Barrie 2:24 into the middle period and at 18:47 they took their first lead when Behenna scored.

Carrick scored on the power play at 3:04 of the third to tie the game 3-3 heading into extra time.
