OHL Roundup: Peterborough outslugs Ottawa in battle of basement dwellers

If nothing else, the Peterborough Petes can still dominate the one team below them in the Eastern Conference standings.

Jonatan Tanus, Michael Clarke and Cody Thompson each scored twice for the Peterborough Petes, who outslugged the Ottawa 67's 10-6 in on Wednesday in the Ontario Hockey League.

Nick Czinder, Eric Cornel and Stephen Pierog also scored for the Petes (17-28-7) while Nelson Armstrong and Brett Findlay chipped in with three assists each Wednesday.

Sean Monahan had two goals for the 67's (14-34-4), and Joseph Blandisi, John Urbanic, Brendan Bell and Connor Brown added singles. Andrew D'Agostini made 31 saves for the Petes.

Elsewhere in the OHL it was: Kitchener 5, Guelph 2; and Mississauga 4, Kingston 1.

At Ottawa, the Petes built a 5-1 by the first intermission. They added a sixth goal early in the second period to chase Jacob Blair from the Ottawa goal after 28 shots.

Clint Windsor replaced Blair and allowed the final four goals while making 20 saves.

The 67's trailed 8-1 seven minutes into the second period, but mounted a comeback through the second half of the game that ended when Thompson made it a 10-6 game with less than two minutes to play.

Rangers 5, Storm 2

At Guelph, Ont., Joel Vienneau made 38 saves to help Kitchener (31-15-6) blow past the Storm (29-17-5).


Steelheads 4, Frontenacs 1

At Mississauga, Ont., Kristoff Kontos scored twice to lead the Steelheads (23-24-4) past Kingston (20-26-5), which has lost 12 straight games.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
