NEWMARKET, Ont. – The Brampton Battalion stayed perfect Tuesday night in Ontario Hockey League preseason play.
Mike Amadio and Barclay Goodrow each scored two goals and added one assist as the Battalion rebounded to a 5-3 victory over the Peterborough Petes, giving the Troops their third win in three exhibition games.
Amadio’s power-play goal at 14:15 of the third period proved the winner, providing the Battalion with a 4-2 lead after it trailed 2-0 in the first period.
Goodrow gave the Troops a 3-2 lead on the power play at 6:27, scoring 16 seconds after Steven Trojanovic was sent off for holding. Goodrow corraled a bouncing puck and snapped it past Peterborough goaltender Andrew D’Agostini from the left-wing circle. Trojanovic also was in the box for Amadio’s game-winner.
Derek Froats scored the other Battalion goal before an estimated 600 at the Ray Twinney Recreation Complex.
Starting goaltender Matej Machovsky gave up two goals on 21 shots before being relieved by Jake Smith at 9:21 of the second period. Smith allowed one goal while facing seven shots.
Brett Findlay, Greg Betzold and Francis Menard scored for Peterborough, which got 31 saves from D’Agostini.
Menard pulled the Petes within 4-3 at 15:08 of the final frame, but Goodrow responded with an empty-netter at 19:32, backhanding the puck down the ice from the Battalion zone and seeing it skitter toward the open net.
The Petes had a delayed penalty pending against them when Amadio got the Troops on the board at 4:58 of the second period. Amadio intercepted an attempted clearing pass and drove to the net, firing the puck into the top corner.
Froats tied it at 16:33, burying a Goodrow rebound with Amadio drawing the other assist. Froats was parked at the left side of the goalmouth and converted when the puck found him.
Froats’s goal came 18 seconds after Matt Bragagnolo fought Peterborough’s Derek Mathers. Bragagnolo suffered a cut to his nose from his own visor. Each combatant received a major and game misconduct.
The first period set a physical tone to the game as the two sides were energized out of the gate. Findlay took a hooking penalty at 7:15, giving the Troops the first power play, but D’Agostini stood tall.
With Findlay fresh out of the penalty box, the Petes went on the attack, and he capitalized. Machovsky stopped Trevor Murphy’s point shot, but Findlay grabbed the puck and jammed it home at 9:39.
Betzold promptly cashed a cross-crease pass from Jonatan Tanus at 11:06, with Machovsky having no chance on the play.
Murphy took a late tripping penalty, but the Battalion was unable to find the back of the net.
Battalion scratches were Spencer Abraham, Brandon Robinson, Patrik Machac, Brennan Feasey, Blake Clarke and Brenden Miller. Peterborough scratched Alexander Robinson, Clark Seymour, Luke Hietkamp, Chase Hatcher, Josh Maguire, Stephen Pierog and Slater Koekkoek.
The Battalion hosts the Guelph Storm in the first half of a home-and-home exhibition series starting at 7 p.m. Thursday. The Troops wrap up their five-game preseason schedule Friday night at Guelph.
