In the 2008 OHL Finals versus the Kitchener Rangers, Belleville was down 3-0 in the series and 4-1 in the game, but on the back of captain Beleskey's four-point night, including the game winner in overtime, Belleville won the game and pushed the series to seven games, before ultimately losing the series.
