OTTAWA - Charlie Graham stopped 33 shots as the Belleville Bulls edged the host Ottawa 67's 3-2 on Sunday afternoon in Ontario Hockey League play.

Joseph Cramarossa had a goal and an assist for the Bulls (10-6-3), who jumped out to a 3-0 first-period lead, and Garrett Hooey and Jordan Subban scored a goal apiece.

“It’s been an up and down couple of weeks, but to find a way to get a big win was special," Bulls' coach and general manager George Burnett said. "We’ve lacked some goal scoring and had some inconsistencies, we’ve given up leads in three of the past four games, so to find a way to get two points was critical for us. I think for our psyche more than anything else.”

Steven Janes and Dante Salituro each had a goal and an assist for the 67's (6-11-2), who have dropped three games in a row.

Keegan Wilson took the loss after allowing three goals on 11 shots through 16 minutes of action. Jacob Blair came in for the final 44 minutes of the game and stopped all 15 shots he faced in relief.

Belleville went 1-for-4 on the power play while Ottawa failed to score on six chances with the man advantage.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
