The North Bay Battalion they got off to a great start on the road on Friday night in Mississauga against the Steelheads. 2:37 in Ole Bjorgvik-Holm was penalized for slashing and ten seconds into the power play. Mitchell Russell (18) fired the puck in past Kai Edmonds to get North Bay on the board 1-0 in front of “2707” fans.

Unfortunately that would be the extent of not only the good start but the good results overall for North Bay as Mississauga would win their seventh home game in their last nine played by scoring five straight goals, en route to a 6-2 victory over the Battalion.

The Steelheads (22-23-2-1) are now just four points back of the Central Division leading Sudbury Wolves for first place in that division while North Bay’s record drops to 11-34-2-0.

The Troops are back on the ice on Sunday afternoon as they host the Kingston Frontenacs.
