OTTAWA - The Kingston Frontenacs scored four unanswered goals in the third period for a 7-5 comeback win over the Ottawa 67's on Monday.

It was his second goal of the game. Mikko Vainonen and Luke Hietkamp — into an empty net — had the other Kingston goals.

Cody Ceci, Trevor Dulong, Mike Vlajkov, Steven Janes and Sean Monahan scored for the 67's (10-24-3), who had a 5-3 lead with 11 minutes left to play.

The 67’s had seven power-play opportunities but were only successful on one of them. The Frontenacs went 2-for-4 with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
