Depleted 67’s fall in Owen Sound

The Ottawa 67’s battled hard in their weekend finale, but came up short in a 4-1 road loss to the Owen Sound Attack.

Ottawa controlled the shots on goal department, outshooting the Attack 33-19, but a depleted roster couldn’t come away with the win against a talented Attack squad. Henry Mews scored for the 67’s.

The 67’s outshot the Attack 10-5 in the opening period, but despite what may have been their strongest frame of the road trip, couldn’t find the back of the net, and they entered the second period in a scoreless tie.

The bad breaks continued for Ottawa, early in the second, when Kaleb Lawrence was able to corral a loose puck in front of the Ottawa goal just 2:31 in, and open the scoring.

Ottawa responded on the powerplay, a few minutes later. Hard work by Will Gerrior freed up the puck down low, and Luca Pinelli fired it to the point for a waiting Mews, who rifled home his ninth of the season, tying the game at 1-1.

Rockland native, and Montreal Canadiens prospect Cedrick Guindon restored the Attack’s lead at the 7:40 mark, however, and later in the frame with Owen Sound on a powerplay of their own, they pushed the lead to 3-1. Gerrior was hauled down in the neutral zone, and as play continued the other way, it was Colby Barlow giving the Attack a two-goal lead.

The 67’s did their best to mount a comeback, but Gavin Bryant scored an empty-netter with 2:04 to play, and Ottawa headed home with a second straight defeat.

Ottawa will return home on Friday, hosting the London Knights on Pride Night inside The Arena at TD Place.

Game Notes:

  • It took the 67’s until their 42nd game to give up 100 goals on the season.
  • Henry Mews snapped an eight-game pointless skid.
  • Mews and Will Gerrior finished tied with a team-high five shots each.
  • Luca Pinelli has eight points in his last 10 games.
