Cody Lindsay did it at both ends of the ice Friday night.
Lindsay had two goals and an assist as the Ottawa 67's defeated the Belleville Bulls 3-2 in the Ontario Hockey League. After Lindsay gave the 67's a 2-0 lead, Howe got the Bulls on the board midway through the second and Panik tied the game 59 seconds into the third. Lindsay then took matters into his own hands.
With 12 seconds to play in the third period, Lindsay won a faceoff in their own end that resulted in an icing call, and then won another that sealed the win for the 67's, their sixth straight over the Bulls.
"Coach (Chris Byrne) put the faceoffs in my hands," Lindsay said. "That's when you know when you're doing well both offensively and defensively."
Lindsay, who has eight goals and 11 points in his last six games, opened the scoring with two second-period goals and then set up Toffoli for the winner goal on a third-period two-on-on.
Perugini made the biggest statement of the two goaltenders by making huge saves off Panik and Adam Payerl in the third period to keep Ottawa in front.
Elsewhere in the OHL it was Erie 5 Windsor 3; Kingston 4 Guelph 2; Kitchener 7 Oshawa 6; London 3 Plymouth 2 (SO); Saginaw 4 Mississauga 2; Owen Sound 5 Sarnia 3 and Sault Ste. Marie 8 Sudbury 5.
