The Ottawa 67’s were playing their second game in as many nights on Saturday, as they visited the Peterborough Petes 24 hours after a 9-6 goal-fest win against Guelph. The Barber Poles were looking to extend their winning streak to 18 games, but fell short in a 4-0 loss on the road, stopping their franchise record streak at 17 wins. The 67’s last loss went all the way back to November 14th in Saginaw.
No goals were scored in the game’s opening period, one that Ottawa slightly out-shot the Petes 10-9.
Peterborough’s Nick Robertson opened the game’s scoring with his 26th of the year at 5:28. The Petes came out flying in the second with 14 shots against 6 from Ottawa. Max Grondin would make it 2-0 before the end of the second thanks to a perfect shot from point blank range who beat Andree, who kept the 67’s in it through forty with 21 saves.
Petes captain Zach Gallant would make it 3-0 a bit past halfway through the final frame with an unassisted goal. Emotions ran high in this game between the top two teams in the East, giving it a little of bit of a playoff feel. Semyon Der-Arguchintsev scored the game’s final goal, giving the Petes a 4-0 lead and a shutout win, Hunter Jones’ second of the season, as he stopped all 23 pucks directed at him.
The Barber Poles will look to start a new winning streak as soon as tomorrow, and no better place to do it than at home in front of their home fans inside The Arena at TD Place. Ottawa will host their newest acquisition’s old team, the Owen Sound Attack, in what will be a special game for Daylon Groulx. Puck drop is scheduled for 2:00 PM.
