Williams 22 saves, Brown lone goal as Otters blank Colts

ERIE, Pa. - Devin Williams turned aside all 22 shots he faced to earn his first Ontario Hockey League shutout as the Erie Otters blanked the visiting Barrie Colts 1-0 on Friday.

Connor Brown scored the winning goal at 3:46 of the third period for the Otters (13-21-5), who completed a two-game season sweep of Barrie, and J.P. Labardo picked up the only assist.

Brown now has 20 goals and 46 points in 39 games, which gives him the team lead in both categories.

The Otters have now won five of their last seven games and have moved within four points of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Mathias Niederberger stopped 36-of-37 shots in a losing cause for the Colts (25-12-1).

Neither club could produce with the power play as Erie went 0 for 2 and Barrie 0 for 3.

Quote of the Day

(The tribute) was great, brought back a lot of memories. I felt I wanted to give them the thank you they deserved. I understand the booing and it was expected. They are great fans.
