Scott Sabourin scores in shootout as Oshawa Generals beat Ottawa 67's 4-3

OTTAWA - Scott Sabourin scored the winning goal in the shootout Wednesday night as the Oshawa Generals rallied to defeat the Ottawa 67's 4-3 in Ontario Hockey League play.

Sabourin, who missed several opportunities throughout the game, beat Keegan Wilson with the eighth and final shot of the shootout.

The 67's had a great opportunity to win the game prior to the shootout as Generals forward Scott Laughton was issued a major penalty and game misconduct for a hit to the head late in the third period.

The 67's played the final 2:34 of regulation with the man advantage that changed to a 4-on-3 for the opening 2:26 of overtime, but were unable to beat Oshawa goaltender Daniel Altshuller.

"It's the older guys that need to take responsibility with their effort for here tonight," Ottawa head coach Chris Byrne said.

"It was a pretty good effort from some of the other guys."

Ryan Van Stralen gave the 67's a 3-2 lead seven minutes into the third period with their third power-play goal of the game, but they were unable to hang onto the lead. Remy Giftopoulos and Sean Monahan had the other goals for Ottawa (3-8-1) while Wilson made 27 saves.

Tyler Biggs had two goals in regulation for the Generals (9-4-1) and Boone Jenner had the other. Altshuller made 27 saves.

67's forward Tyler Graovac had a six-game goal-scoring streak snapped in the loss.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
