Boone Jenner scores twice as Oshawa Generals slam Peterborough Petes 5-0

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Boone Jenner scored twice and added an assist to lead the Oshawa Generals to a 5-0 win over the Peterborough Petes in Ontario Hockey League play Thursday.

Scott Sabourin, Michael Dal Colle and Matt Petgrave added singles for Oshawa (10-5-2) while Daniel Altshuller made 29 saves for the shutout.

The Generals scored three power-play goals and added one short-handed score in a game they dominated from start to finish. Oshawa outshot Peterborough 17-4 in the first period, 26-13 in the second and 52-29 overall.

Jenner got things started with an unassisted power-play goal from the faceoff circle at 18:43 of the first period.

Peterborough (4-8-3) held on until the second period when Sabourin broke past the Petes defence, made a deke and flipped a backhander past Michael Giugovaz, who made 48 saves on the night.

Dal Colle added another power-play goal in the second, tapping home a rebound from a shot off the crossbar.

Jenner scored the only even-strength goal of the night at 4:47 in the third and Petgrave rounded out the scoring just under five minutes later.

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.
