OTTAWA - Jamie McGinn had two power-play goals and an assist Sunday to lead the Ottawa 67's past the Sudbury Wolves 5-1 in the Ontario Hockey League regular-season finale for both teams.

McGinn beat Wolves goaltender Andrew Loverock with a high shot from the faceoff circle late in the first and added another in the second off a rebound during a 5-on-3 power play.

His younger brother, Tye, and Logan Couture each added a goal and an assist and Thomas Nesbitt also scored for the 67's (29-34-2-3), who vaulted over the Barrie Colts into sixth place in the Eastern Conference. Ottawa will face the third-place Oshawa Generals in the opening round of the playoffs.

"We needed at least one point coming into this game to clinch sixth and I think we match up a lot better against Oshawa than against Brampton or Belleville, so it was a real important game," Jamie McGinn said.

Tyler Cuma added three assists for Ottawa, which has won two of its past three games. Adam Courchaine stopped 28 shots to earn the win in goal.

Eric O'Dell replied with a power-play goal for the Wolves (17-46-2-3), losers of two straight. Loverock finished with 39 saves.

There will be no playoffs this year for Sudbury, which made it to the OHL final last season. The Wolves do, however, finish a point behind the Erie Otters for last overall and will pick first in May's OHL priority selection.
