Salituro scores winner, Blair 37 saves as 67's snap six-game winless streak

KINGSTON, Ont. - Dante Salituro scored the winner in the shootout as the Ottawa 67's held on to beat the host Kingston Frontenacs 5-4 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Sean Monahan, Brett Gustavsen and Nevin Guy each had a goal and an assist for the 67's (13-33-3), who blew a 4-1 lead midway through the second period, and Sean Callaghan added a single goal.

Billy Jenkins, Samuel Schutt, Henri Ikonen and Luke Hietkamp scored for the Frontenacs (20-22-4), who are now winless in seven games.

Jacob Blair made 37 saves for Ottawa, which snapped a six-game slide. Mike Morrison started in goal for Kingston, however he was pulled after giving up four goals on 15 shots. Colin Furlong stopped all 18 shots he faced in 35 minutes of relief but took the loss after giving up Salituro's shootout winner.

The 67's went 1 for 5 on the power play while the Frontenacs failed to score on their only chance with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
