Morrison makes 28 saves as the Frontenacs blank the Bulls 2-0

KINGSTON, Ont. - Mike Morrison stopped all 28 shots he faced as the Kingston Frontenacs blanked the visiting Belleville Bulls 2-0 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League play.

"The guys played good infront of me, it was a good game for us, it proves we can play with anybody in this league," said Morrison after the win.

Henri Ikonen scored the winning goal at 15:15 of the third period for the Frontenacs (9-9-0) while Sam Bennett added Kingston's other goal into an empty net.

Ikonen came out from behind the net and beat Belleville goatender Malcolm Subban through the five-hole for the game winner.

Subban stopped 36-of-37 shots in a losing effort for the Bulls (9-6-2).

"He's playing fantastic, it's good that we beat him tonight," said Morrison about Subban. "I think it's going to be a lot tougher next time."

Neither club could produce with the extra man as Kingston went 0-for-3 on the power play while Belleville went 0-for-2.

Belleville's Daniil Zharkov was forced to leave the game briefly in the second period after being high-sticked by Kingston's Ryan Hanes, who was given a four minute double-minor on the play. Zharkov would return later in the period.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
