67’s edged by Frontenacs in Kingston
The 67’s lost a tight one on the road Thursday night, dropping a 2-0 decision to the Kingston Frontenacs despite outshooting the home side.
In the end the 67’s fired 36 shots at Kingston goalie Jeremy Helvig but couldn’t get one by the netminder. Olivier Tremblay also had a strong showing in goal for Ottawa, stopping 23 of 24 shots.
The only Frontenacs player to beat Tremblay was Nathan Dunkley, who opened the scoring midway through the first period with Kingston enjoying a two-man advantage. The two goalies battled it out the rest of the way. Kingston’s Linus Nyman scored into an empty net with 20 seconds left in the game.
