Lucas Lessio and Boone Jenner lead Oshawa Generals past Peterborough Petes 5-2

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Lucas Lessio and Boone Jenner each scored a pair of goals to the lead the Oshawa Generals to a 5-2 win over the Peterborough Petes on Thursday in the Ontario Hockey League season opener for both teams.

Sebastian Uvira added a goal for Oshawa (1-0) and Matt Petgrave added three assists.

Francis Menard and Stephen Pierog each scored a goal and as assist for Peterborough (0-1).

Lessio had the first two goals of the game, one in the first and one in the second. Both goals came when Lessio used his speed to skate around defenders and break in alone, beating Petes' goalie Andrew D'Agostini.

Jenner banged both his goals home from scrambles in front of the net to give the Generals a 4-0 lead after 40 minutes. Lessio and Jenner then assisted on Uvira's marker as the Generals stretched their lead 4:17 into the third.

Peterborough broke Daniel Altshuller's shutout bid with a pair of goals in the third period.

Menard took the puck on a give-and-go with Pierog and flicked a wrist shot high above Altshuller's shoulder. He then slid the puck back to the point and Pierog tipped home the ensuing shot for the final score.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
