Laughton sets up three goals as the Generals double up the Frontenacs

OSHAWA, Ont. - Scott Laughton had three assists as the Oshawa Generals doubled up the visiting Kingston Frontencas 4-2 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Bradley Latour had a goal and an assist for the Generals (38-21-4), who extended their win streak to five games, while Matt Petgrave, Boone Jenner and Lucas Lessio scored a goal apiece.

Sam Bennett and Spencer Watson scored for the Frontenacs (25-31-5).

Oshawa took the lead early as Latour scored 3:49 into the game and Lessio followed 1:32 later.

Latour's goal came on a scramble in front of Kingston's net while Lessio's was on a give-and-go with Cole Cassels.

Bennett brought the Frontenacs to within one on the power play early in the second period, but the Generals restored the two-goal lead before the end of the period when Petgrave came in off the point and put one just inside the post with seven second remaining in the period.

Watson scored with 1:48 remaining to make for a tight finish, but Generals captain Jenner scored into an empty net to put the game away.

Oshawa's Daniel Altshuller made 22 saves for his league-leading 34th win as Mike Morrison stopped 24-of-27 shots in net for Kingston.

The Generals went 0 for 2 on the power play while the Frontenacs scored once on four chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
