Laughton scores in overtime, Generals defeat Bulls and claim fifth straight win

OSHAWA, Ont. - Scott Laughton scored the game winning goal 2:16 into overtime to lift the Oshawa Generals to a 4-3 victory over the Belleville Bulls in Ontario Hockey League action Monday.

Laughton came in over the blue-line and beat Belleville's Malcolm Subban with a low shot to the glove side to send Oshawa (6-1-0) to its fifth consecutive victory.

Belleville's Garrett Hooey sent the game to overtime when his shot from the top of the circle handcuffed Oshawa netminder Daniel Altshuller with 24 seconds left in regulation. That goal came just over a minute after Generals rookie Michael Dal Colle scored low in the slot to put the Generals up 3-2.

Captain Boone Jenner and defenceman Matt Petgrave also scored for Oshawa. Jenner's goal erased a 1-0 Belleville lead just 20 seconds into the third, while Petgrave's goal gave the Generals a brief 2-1 lead later in the period.

Laughton and Dal Colle each added assists for two-point games.

Captain Brendan Gaunce and Austen Brassard also scored for Belleville (3-2-1). Hooey also registered an assist to finish with two points.

Altshuller made 24 saves for the Generals, while Subban stopped 23 shots for the Bulls.

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
