Scott Laughton leads Oshawa Generals past Barrie Colts 3-1 with three points

BARRIE, Ont. - Scott Laughton had a goal and two assists as the Oshawa Generals knocked off the Barrie Colts 3-1 in Ontario Hockey League action Thursday night.

Chris Carlisle and Scott Sabourin scored for Oshawa (18-12-3), which has now won four of its last five road games. Michael Dal Colle had a pair of assists for the Generals.

Erik Bradford replied for Barrie (21-9-1), which was without the services of top scorers Mark Scheifele and Anthony Camara, both of whom made Canada's junior national team earlier Thursday. Andreas Athanasiou picked up a helper to bring his assist streak to five games.

The Generals were able to strike on the man advantage, going 1 for 5 on the power play. Barrie finished the night at 0 for 1.

Daniel Altshuller made 26 saves for the win.

Colts goaltender Mathias Niederberger turned aside 38 shots in defeat.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
