Thorold Tunnel re-opens
It's good news for south Niagara residents who use the Thorold Tunnel.
The Ministry of Transportation confirming the WB lanes of the tunnel have re-opened.
They were closed last Friday after a flat bed truck carrying an excavator scraped the walls and roof of the tunnel causing extensive damage.
Kirill Maksimov enjoyed a four point night while Johnny Corneil and Ben Jones each scored a pair in the IceDogs 6-3 Friday night win in Erie. With the win, Niagara has now secured home ice advantage in their first round playoff series with Oshawa.
Johnny Corneil scored the overtime winner exactly half-way through the extra period as the IceDogs prevailed 3-2 over visiting Hamilton for Niagara's fifth win in six meetings versus the Bulldogs. Stephen Dhillon was also big stopping 41 shots for the IceDogs fifth straight victory.
IceDogs forward Kirill Maksimov has been signed to a three-year entry-level contract with the Edmonton Oilers. A year ago, the Oilers signed 'Dogs captain Ryan Mantha to an entry-level contract as well.
