Attack Reel In The Steelheads

Mississauga | by Manny Paiva  

Nastasiuk scores twice to lead Owen Sound to a 3-1 OHL win in Mississauga.

The Owen Sound Attack ended their OHL weekend road trip with a 3-1 win in Mississauga.

Attack Captain Zach Nastasiuk scored twice while Petrus Palmu added another as Owen Sound erased a 1-0 Steelheads lead after the first period.

The Attack took over the game in the second period when they outshot Mississauga 27-3, but the game was tied 1-1 after 40 minutes.

Owen Sound Head Coach Greg Ireland says they may not have had any puck luck, but he liked how his team battled and stayed determined to get the win.

Attack defenceman Damir Sharipzyanov finished with three assists in the game while forward Kyle Platzer added two assists and continues to lead Owen Sound in scoring.

Platzer -- who has 52 points -- says he thought Owen Sound had a better start to the game than the first two games on the road, and that led to the better outcome.

Nastasiuk had a great three game road trip. Owen Sound scored eight goals over the three games and the Attack Captain was in on seven of the eight goals.

Owen Sound netminder Michael McNiven picked up his 10th win in his OHL rookie season by making 25 saves.

Mississauga goalie Jacob Brennan finished with 44 saves in the hockey game for the loss, and the only goal scored by the Steelheads was Sean Day on the power play.

With the win, Owen Sound moves one point ahead of Kitchener for 6th place in the OHL Western Conference.

The Attack are next in action on Saturday when they host Kingston at 7:30 PM at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.
