Carlisle with two points as the Generals edge the Bulls

OSHAWA, Ont. - Chris Carlisle had a goal and an assist as the Oshawa Generals downed the visiting Belleville Bulls 3-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Carlisle opened the scoring late in the first period for the Generals (19-12-3), who are now only one point behind the Bulls (19-10-4) for top spot in the East Division.

Bradley Latour gave Oshawa a 2-0 lead through two, scoring with two seconds remaining in the period.

Scott Simmonds put the Bulls on the board, snapping Daniel Altshuller's shutout 3:51 into the third period, but Scott Laughton's power-play goal restored the two-goal margin just before the midway point of the period.

Belleville's Brendan Gaunce closed out the scoring with 2:04 remaining.

Altshuller made 33 saves for his 19th win of the season, while Charlie Graham stopped 30-of-33 shots in a losing cause.

Oshawa went 1 for 3 on the power play while Belleville failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I think everybody wanted the puck tonight. Everybody wanted to be part of the solution and it reflected on the way we played. It's tiring when you have to chase the puck but tonight was one of those nights where everyone really wanted to make a play and wanted to have an impact on the game.
