Erie Otters score four unanswered goals to cruise past Belleville Bulls 4-1

BELLEVILLE, Ont. - The Erie Otters scored four unanswered goals to beat the league-worst Belleville Bulls 4-1 in the lone Ontario Hockey game Monday.

Dylan Strome, Connor Brown, Dane Fox and Andre Burakovsky each had a goal for Erie (37-9-2).

Aaron Berisha opened the scoring on the power play at 9:41 in the second period for Belleville (13-30-4) before the Otters came alive.

Devin Williams finished with 30 saves in net for the Otters, while Bulls goaltender Michael Giugovaz stopped 29 shots.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
