Subban brothers lead the Bulls to ninth win in a row

OTTAWA - Defenceman Jordan Subban extended his point streak to five games and goaltender Malcolm Subban made 34 saves as the Belleville Bulls doubled up the host Ottawa 67's 6-3 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Jordan Subban had a goal and an assist for Belleville and during his run he's produced four goals and 11 points. With 48 points in 58 games, the 17-year-old sits in a tie with Ryan O'Connor of the Barrie Colts for fourth in scoring for OHL defencemen.

Malcolm Subban earned his ninth win in his last 10 starts and improved to 25-9-3 on the season. He currently leads the OHL with a 2.22 goals-against average and is second in save percentage at .932.

Aaron Berisha, Alan Quine, Daniil Zharkov and Brady Austin also had a goal and an assist each for the Bulls (38-14-6), who extended their win streak to nine games, while Joseph Cramarossa chipped in with two assists.

Quine has produced 33 points in 19 games with Belleville since being acquired from the Peterborough Petes on Jan. 10th.

Tyler Graovac, who played three seasons with Ottawa before being traded to Belleville on Jan. 5th, scored once for the Bulls and now has five goals in his last four contests.

Sean Monahan scored two goals for the 67's (15-41-4), who are winless in seven games, and Brett Gustavsen had a goal and an assist.

Ottawa's Jacob Blair turned away 24-of-30 shots in a losing cause.

The Bulls went 2 for 7 on the power play while the 67's scored twice on six chances with the man advantage.
