Brampton, Ont. (Dec. 14, 2006) - The Mississauga IceDogs continue to enjoy life on the road as they defeated the Brampton Battalion 6-4 this evening, improving their record away from the Hershey Centre to 13-4-0-1 on the season. Veterans Jadran Beljo, Chris Lawrence and Mike Swift led the way once again, with 9 points between them. As a result, the IceDogs overall record now sits at 19-11-0-2.

Mississauga controlled the play in the first two periods, outshooting Brampton 23-15 and building up a 5-0 lead. The goalscorers were Beljo (2), Lawrence (2) and Travis Fuller while the assists were credited to Beljo, Fuller, Swift (2), Nathan Martine, Brett Oliphant, Jordan Skellett and Alex Pietrangelo.

The Battalion made it interesting in the 3rd period, collecting three consecutive goals off the sticks of Graham McNabb, Cody Hodgson and Phil Oreskovic. Their assists were grabbed by Oreskovic, Matt Auffrey, Ken Peroff, Jason Dale and Justin Levac. However, Lawrence's power-play marker, off of Beljo and Frankie Santini feeds, with 5:30 remaining, provided the final nail in the coffin. Auffrey struck for the Battalion 18 seconds later, but that was as close as they could get.

Andrew Loverock made 33 saves for the IceDogs while Bryan Pitton stopped 27 shots for Brampton. The IceDogs finished the night 1 for 7 on the power-play while the Battalion were 0 for 3. The game's three stars were Beljo (1st), Auffrey (2nd) and Dale (3rd).

The IceDogs now return home to host the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds tomorrow evening at 7:30 p.m. and the Sudbury Wolves on Sunday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. before they depart for their Christmas break.
