The North Bay Battalion are on the cusp of playoff spot again after a 4-1 win over the Niagara Ice Dogs.

The Troops now trail the 67’s by one point for eighth place in the East.

Head Coach Stan Butler says the players did the little things well against the IceDogs last night (Thursday).

“They feel good about the win, but they probably also understand that it was really, really tough to get.  Hopefully that will teach them what it takes to win,” he said.

Steve Harland scored the game winning goal while Brett McKenzie had two goals.

The win snaps North Bay’s five game losing skid.

The Troops visit Sudbury tonight.

Catch the game on Country 600 CKAT starting at 6:55 pm.
