67’s get back in win column with victory over Kingston
The Ottawa 67’s shook off a loss from the day before to close out the weekend on a high note, downing the Kingston Frontenacs 4-2 on Sunday afternoon.
The 67’s stormed back from a 2-1 deficit with three unanswered goals in the third period to hand Kingston the loss. The two points also pulled Ottawa even with Kingston for third in the Eastern Conference, a single point behind first-place Hamilton.
Ottawa got off to a good start in this one with Sasha Chmelevski scoring his 14th of the year with five minutes to go in the opening frame. A pair of second-period goals by Kingston put the home side up heading into the third, where the 67’s took over.
First it was captain Travis Barron scoring his sixth of the year to pull Ottawa even, a goal that was followed by the eventual game-winner courtesy of Nikita Okhotyuk’s third of the year. Mathieu Foget added his ninth of the season into an empty with under a minute to go.
Cedrik Andree picked up in the win for Ottawa in goal, turning away 28 of 30 Kingston shots. Jeremy Helvig was tagged with the loss for the Frontenacs.
