OHL Roundup: A look at Friday's games

Darcy Greenaway played the hero for his club as the Kingston Frontenacs came from behind to defeat the visiting Erie Otters 6-5 in overtime on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Kingston found itself down two goals midway through the third period until Billy Jenkins scored twice to tie the game and force overtime.

Greenaway then jammed home a loose puck at the side of the net 33 seconds into the extra period to give his club their second win of the season.

"It felt really good to score the overtime winner and to be able to come back like that was really good," said Greenaway. "Coach (Todd) Gill told us in between the second and third we got away from the system. He said just stick to the system and get back to the basics. I think we did that."

Jenkins added a first-period goal to complete his first-career hat trick for the Frontenacs (2-0-0) while Nathan Cull and Mikko Vainonen scored a goal apiece.

Warren Steele and Ryan Kujawinksi each chipped in with three assists.

Connor Brown led the Otters (1-2-1) offensively with two goals.

J.P. Labrado scored once and set up two more as Connor Crisp and Luke Cairns each registered a goal and an assist.

Kingston's Mike Morrison was chased from the net after allowing five goals on 27 shots through 43 minutes of play. Colin Furlong stopped all five shots he faced in relief to pick up the victory.

Erie's Devin Williams stopped 40-of-46 shots in a losing effort.

The Frontenacs had success on their power play as they went 3 for 6 while the Otters scored once on three chances with the man advantage.

Elsewhere in the OHL, it was: Sault Ste. Marie 4, Sarnia 3; Brampton 1, Belleville 0; Owen Sound 3, Guelph 2; Kitchener 2, London 1; Mississauga 3, Windsor 2; Niagara 4, Ottawa 2 and Oshawa 5, Peterborough 1.

At Kingston, Ont., Cull opened the scoring for the Frontenacs with a cross crease power-play goal 4:18 into the game.

At 9:53 Brown tipped in a shot from the point to tie the game for the Otters.

The Frontenacs went ahead with only 18 seconds left in the first period as Jenkins scored his first of the season.

Vainonen scored his first OHL goal five minutes into the second period, but Erie then exploded with three unanswered power-play goals to take the lead.

Crisp scored at 6:49, Labardo followed at 16:31 and Cairns added one more at 18:29 to give the Otters a 4-3 lead after 40 minutes of play.

Brown's second of the game at 3:26 of the third period increased Erie's lead to two goals but Jenkins scored twice in less than three minutes.

Quote of the Day

I just wanted to do something to take my mind off the shot and let me relax a little bit. It seemed like the fans liked it. I'm glad I was able to score.
