Morrison makes 42 saves as the Frontenacs down the Bulls

BELLEVILLE, Ont. - Mike Morrison made 42 saves as the Kingston Frontenacs downed the Belleville Bulls 3-1 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Sam Bennett, Darcy Greenaway and Billy Jenkins all scored for Kingston (15-12-0).

Belleville's (15-9-4) lone goal was scored by Brendan Gaunce and Malcolm Subban stopped 38-of-40 shots in a losing cause.

The Frontenacs had success with their power play as they scored twice on four chances, while the Bulls went 0 for 3 with the man advantage.

The game opened up to a fast pace with action back and forth at both ends. Kingston opened the scoring on the power play when Bennett took a cross-ice feed in front of the Belleville goal and put home his eighth goal of the season.

Gaunce answered back in just 21 seconds, converting on a 3-on-2 break and snapping a shot from the left face-off circle past Morrison.

The Frontenacs retook the lead late in the second period on another power-play goal from Greenaway. Subban let a rebound go in the slot and was caught out of position, allowing Greenaway to wrist the puck into an open side of the net.

Jenkins closed out the scoring with an empty-net goal.

Quote of the Day

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
