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

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
