Kujawinski scores hat trick to help Frontenacs to 7-5 win over 67's

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.

Mike Morrison made 34 saves for Kingston while Jacob Blair stopped 33 shots for Ottawa.

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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
