OTTAWA - A five-point night by Steven Janes helped the Ottawa 67's snap a seven-game losing streak.
Janes scored twice and had three assists as the 67's beat the Kingston Frontenacs 5-3 in the lone Ontario Hockey League game Tuesday.
A goal from Sean Monahan just 24 seconds into the game marked the beginning of the end of the skid.
"We played a tidier game on the weekend against Plymouth, but tonight we made some plays and obviously Janes was a difference maker," 67's coach Chris Byrne said.
Monahan also had two assists for the 67's (7-15-2) while Remy Giftopoulos and Mike Vlajkov had a goal apiece. Clint Windsor made 35 saves to collect his first win with the 67's after being acquired from the Mississauga Steelheads last week.
Roland McKeown, Spencer Watson and Darcy Greenaway had the goals for the Frontenacs (12-10-0), who used both of their goaltenders. Mike Morrison started but was replaced by Colin Furlong five minutes into the second period after allowing three goals on 17 shots.
Janes was the only 67's player to beat Furlong, who made 10 saves, and he did that in the third period when Ottawa had a two-man advantage. Janes' other goal went into an empty net.
The 67's now head out on a nine-game road trip that will see them play three games each of the next three weekends.
Tuesday was the first of four straight road games for the Frontenacs.
