The first game involving a depleted Niagara Ice Dogs performed on Saturday night, dropping a close 3-2 decision to Kingston.  This was a strange one in that Kingston scored, only to have the Ice Dogs respond within 20 seconds both times.  The first time saw Steven Shipley respond to Cody Alcock's goal within 9 seconds.  The second time Niagara's Luke Mercer answered Kyler Nixon's goal within 18 seconds.  Alex Gudbransen would provide the margin of victory early in the 3rd period, marking the 1st time that Kingston had won a game when tied up after two periods. 

The Ice Dogs close out their pre-Christmas schedule with home games vs Erie and Sudbury on Thursday and Saturday respectively.   Both games are live on TV Cogeco and the OHL Action Pack starting at 7:00 pm.   As first cuts for the Canadian Junior team will be made on Tuesday, there is a chance that the Ice Dogs could have any combination of Ryan Strome, Dougie Hamilton, Freddie Hamilton and Mark Visentin back in the line up.
