Jenner scores three times as the Generals extend win streak to six games

KINGSTON, Ont. - Boone Jenner scored three times as the Oshawa Generals downed the host Kingston Frontenacs 5-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Justice Dundas and Brian Hughes also scored for the Generals (39-21-4), who extended their win streak to six games, and Tyler Biggs chipped in with two assists.

Ryan Kujawinksi and Spencer Watson scored for the Frontenacs (25-33-5), who have dropped three games in a row.

Daniel Altshuller made 31 saves for the win as Mike Morrison allowed five goals on 33 shots before getting pulled midway through the third period. Colin Furlong replaced Morrison and stopped all five shots he faced in relief.

Oshawa went 2 for 2 on the power play while Kingston scored once on three chances with the man advantage.

Dundas made it 1-0 for the Generals at the 2:07 mark of the first period when he jammed home the puck past Morrison and Jenner extended the Oshawa lead to 2-0 with a power-play goal two minutes later.

Biggs thought he made it 3-0, but the goal was waived off due to a high stick.

Watson put the Frontenacs on the board after being left alone in front of Altshuller while on the power play at 12:04 of the second period and Kujawinski fooled Altshuller with a wrist-shot on the rush three minutes into the third period to tie up the game.

Jenner broke the tie, with the eventual winner, on the power play 11 seconds after Sam Bennett was called for a goaltender interference penalty and he and Hughes added two more goals in the span of 32 seconds to put Oshawa ahead for good.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
