Cuma scores in shootout as Ottawa 67's edge Niagara IceDogs 2-1

NHL.com @NHL

The sixth time was the charm for the Ottawa 67's, at least when it comes to the shootout.

Defenceman Tyler Cuma scored the deciding goal in the shootout's sixth round as the Ottawa 67's beat the Niagara IceDogs 2-1 in Ontario Hockey League action Sunday afternoon.

Cuma beat Visentin with a nifty one-handed deke after all six Niagara shooters failed to score on Ottawa's Perugini and the first five Ottawa shooters all came up short.

"There's a couple of moves that I've kind of got up my sleeve," said Cuma. "I wasn't really looking for that one."

"I wanted to shoot low blocker and I saw that he was taking it away, he went down and I've got a nice long reach here so I pulled it back to the backhand and put it in one-handed."

Cuma has four assists so far this season.

Elsewhere in the OHL, it was Windsor 3 Brampton 2 (OT); Kingston 4 Sarnia 3; Guelph 3 Oshawa 2; London 3 Sault Ste. Marie 2.

At Ottawa, Thomas Nesbitt had a goal for Ottawa (7-10-5), while Chris Perugini stopped 36 shots.

Reggie Traccitto was the lone scorer for Niagara (8-12-4), while Mark Visentin finished with 28 saves.
