Henri Ikonen and Spencer Watson score in shootout as Frontenacs down 67's 3-2

OTTAWA - Henri Ikonen and Spencer Watson scored shootout goals Monday morning to lead the Kingston Frontenacs past the Ottawa 67's 3-2 on a special School Day promotion in the nation's capital.

Tyler Graovac was the only 67's player to beat Kingston netminder Mike Morrison in the shootout, and he did that on the first shot. Morrison then stopped Sean Monahan and Jake Cardwell for the win.

Ikonen and Roland McKeown scored in regulation for the Frontenacs (6-8-1), who avenged an 8-6 loss to Ottawa in Kingston on Friday.

Taylor Fielding and Taylor Davis had the goals for the 67's (4-8-2), who missed an opportunity to win their second game in a row for the first time this season.

Both teams went 0-for-2 on the power play and the Frontenacs outshot Ottawa 37-33.

The 67's had leads of 1-0 and 2-1 but were unable to get any breathing room. The score was tied 1-1 after the first period and 2-2 after the second.

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
