The Ottawa 67’s extended their winning streak to three games closing out the weekend with a two-game sweep over the Generals with a convincing 6-2 win Sunday night in Oshawa. Following Friday night’s 5-3 win at TD Place, the 67’s struck early and often in Sunday’s content scoring three times in the first before adding three more in the second to improve their record to 3-1-0 against the Generals this season.
Sasha Chmelevski opened the scoring with a shorthanded tally just over two minutes into the game. Just over a minute later, Austen Keating, who netted a clutch goal in Friday night’s win, notched his 10th of the season to pace the 67’s to the early 2-0 advantage. Ottawa made it 3-0 when Kody Clark scored his ninth of the season on the powerplay to round out the first period scoring.
The second period played out very similar to the first for the 67’s who found three more goals. Just over four minutes into the middle frame, Oliver True claimed his second goal of the season which forced a goaltending change for the Generals. The changed proved ineffective as the Barber Poles scored less than two minutes later as Matt Foget’s eighth goal of the season made it 5-0.
Oshawa battled back with a pair of their own in the second period, but Sasha Chmelevski netted his team-leading 13th of the season with 18 seconds left to put the 67’s ahead 6-2 after two periods.
Olivier Tremblay, who had ample offensive support on the evening with 11 Ottawa players earning at least a point, shut the door in the third period en route to his eighth win of the season (8-2-1).
Ottawa now moves into first place in the East Division and sit second in the Eastern Conference – one point back of the Barrie Colts.
The 67’s will return to action next Saturday, November 18 hosting the Hamilton Bulldogs at TD Place at 2 p.m.
