Malcolm Subban makes 23 saves as Bulls blank Ottawa 67's 3-0

BELLEVILLE, Ont. - Malcolm Subban made 23 saves for the Belleville Bulls as they picked up a 3-0 shutout victory over the Ottawa 67's Sunday afternoon in Ontario Hockey League action.

Stephen Silas, Sergey Kuptsov and Carter Sandlak all scored for Belleville (14-8-3).

Garrett Hooey chipped in with two assists on the evening as well for the Bulls.

After a quiet first period that saw no scoring, Belleville finally got the ball rolling with Silas' third goal of the campaign. Digging the puck out of the corner, Silas stickhandled his way to the front of the net before sneaking the puck through the pads of Clint Windsor.

Windsor was by far the more tested goalie, making 50 saves for Ottawa (7-18-2). Subban's shutout was the second of the year for the Boston Bruins' first-round draft pick.

Kuptsov added the insurance marker early in the third period, converting off a scrum in front of the net and banging home his fifth of the year.

Sandlak's goal late in the third closed out the scoring.

Ottawa finished the night going 0-for-5 with the man advantage while Belleville was 0-for-4.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
