Sean Callaghan, Ryan Van Stralen, Steven Janes, Nevin Guy and Taylor Fielding each scored once for the 67's (7-17-2) as Dante Salituro chipped in with three assists.
Keegan Wilson made 24 saves for the win as Jacob Blair allowed three goals on eight shots and was pulled 10 minutes into the game. Clint Windsor stopped 30-of-33 shots in 49 minutes of relief, but took the loss.
Guelph went 1-for-5 on the power play while Ottawa scored twice on five chances with the man advantage.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
