OHL Roundup: A look at Friday's games

Ottawa 67's forward Tyler Toffoli may be leading the league in scoring, but that doesn't mean you can forget about his teammate Shane Prince.

Prince had a goal and two assists as the 67's defeated the visiting Sarnia Sting 5-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action.

The fourth-year forward now has nine goals and 19 points in his last nine games, giving him a total of 26 goals and 61 points in 37 games this season.

Mike Cazzola also scored a goal and set up two more for the 67's (30-11-5), who have won now five straight. Toffoli scored his league-leading 37th goal of the season while Taylor Fielding and Cody Ceci added the others.

Nail Yakupov extended his scoring streak to seven games with a goal for the Sting (23-19-5), who have now dropped three in a row. Ryan Spooner scored the other.

Petr Mrazek made 40 saves for the win while JP Anderson turned away 34 shots in defeat.

Ottawa went 1 for 3 on the power play as Sarnia failed to score on either of their opportunities with the man advantage.

Elsewhere in the OHL, it was: Barrie 6, Brampton 2; Guelph 3, Niagara 0; Kingston 2, Oshawa 1 (OT); Kitchener 5, Owen Sound 4; London 5, Windsor 2; Mississauga 3, Peterborough 2; Sault Ste. Marie 3, Erie 1 and Plymouth 6, Sudbury 5 (OT).

At Ottawa, after a scoreless first period, the 67's jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second.

Fielding scored at 2:45 and then it was Toffoli at 13:05.

Spooner cut the lead in half for the Sting at 17:21, making it a one-goal game heading into the final 20 minutes of play.

Ceci scored on the power play at 11:49, but again Sarnia chipped away at the lead when Yakupov scores less than two minutes later.

Prince scored for Ottawa at 14:19 and Cazzola secured a 67's victory with an empty-net goal in the final minute of the game.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
