BELLEVILLE, Ont. - Cory Emmerton enjoyed a perfect night - and so did the Kingston Frontenacs' power play.

Emmerton had four goals and two assists as the Frontenacs dominated special-teams play in a 7-3 win over the Belleville Bulls in Ontario Hockey League action Wednesday night.

The 19-year-old Detroit Red Wings prospect scored once in the first, added the go-ahead goal in the second and completed the hat trick on a power play late in the third. His fourth goal of the game, and 11th of the season, came with one minute left in regulation.

Linemates Nathan Moon and Matthew Kang each added a goal and three assists as the Frontenacs (5-11-0-1) equalled their season high in goals set Oct. 26 against Peterborough. Kingston has won three of its past four games, scoring 25 goals over that span. The Frontenacs had just 10 goals in seven games prior to that.

Bobby Mignardi had the other goal for Kingston, which went 3-for-3 with the man advantage while killing off all three Belleville power plays in the game.

Jason Guy made the lead stand with a 40-save performance as the Frontenacs cruised despite being outshot 43-28.

P.K. Subban and Keaton Turkiewicz led the way with a goal and an assist apiece for the Bulls (10-4-1-1), which saw its points streak end at three games. Nick Pageau also scored while Matt Beleskey added three assists in the loss.

Belleville starting netminder Mike Murphy was pulled at 4:45 of the second period after allowing three goals. He re-entered the game at the start of the third after backup Edward Pasquale surrendered two goals on seven shots.

Murphy finished with 16 saves.
