Jenner scores twice as the Generals down the Bulls 5-2

BELLEVILLE, Ont. - Boone Jenner scored twice for the Oshawa Generals as they handed the host Belleville Bulls a 5-2 loss on Saturday night in Ontario Hockey League action.

Scott Sabourin, Brian Hughes and Tyler Biggs had the other goals for Oshawa (3-1-0).

The Bulls (2-2-0) countered with goals from Sergey Kuptsov and Jordan Subban.

Former Bulls' draft pick Daniel Altshuller wasn't tested that often, but was solid when he needed to be as he made 22 saves to earn the win.

Malcolm Subban stopped 28 shots in defeat.

Oshawa went 0-for-3 on the power play while Belleville finished the night 1-for-3.

Sabourin opened the scoring on a broken play early in the first period as he spun and fired a wrist shot from the slot that bounced through a crowd and over the blocker of Subban.

Kuptsov scored his first goal in a Bulls' uniform to tie the game 1-1.

After what looked to be the go-ahead goal for Oshawa was called off early in the second period, Jenner put the Generals up two with his fourth and fifth goals of the season.

Subban scored early in the third for Belleville but Hughes responded for Oshawa and Biggs followed with an empty-net goal.

Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
