Shipley scores twice as IceDogs down 67's 4-2; Ottawa loses sixth in a row

OTTAWA - Steven Shipley had two goals and Ryan Strome had two assists Saturday as the Niagara IceDogs scored a 4-2 win over the Ottawa 67's in Ontario Hockey League play.

The IceDogs trailed 2-1 late in the second period but got a power-play goal late in the period and then another early in the third period to take a 3-2 lead. Shipley then scored an insurance goal midway through the third to ice the win for the Dogs.

Brook Hiddink and Brett Ritchie also scored for the IceDogs (15-7-1) who have now won three straight.

The 67's (6-14-2) got goals from Remy Giftopoulos and Brett Gustavsen in the loss, their sixth straight. They were also outshot 44-25 by the IceDogs and were kept in the game by the goaltending of Jacob Blair.

"I was happy with our effort and Jacob Blair gave us a chance to be in the game. We will learn from this and move on," said 67's coach Chris Byrne.

The 67's were 0-for-3 on the power play while the IceDogs went 2-for-7. Despite that stat, Niagara coach Marty Williamson wasn't happy with his special teams.

"Our power play wasn't good but we found a way to win because of our talent up front," he said.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
