OTTAWA - Logan Couture scored 34 seconds into overtime as the Ottawa 67's ended a five-game losing streak with a 4-3 win over the Belleville Bulls in Ontario Hockey League action Friday night.

Matt Lahey, Cody Lindsay and Sean Ryan also scored for the 67's (6-6-0-2).

Adam Courchaine made 20 saves for the win.

P.K. Subban scored a power-play goal with 26 seconds left in the third period to tie the game for the Bulls and force overtime.

"I thought we played really well, we limited their chances and everyone played as hard as they could," said 67's coach Brian Kilrea.

"When they got that tying goal, that was discouraging."

But then Couture came to the rescue.

"It's a big win for us and I think it's the first time I've scored in overtime," Couture said. "It couldn't come at a better time for this team coming off a losing streak like that. We gained momentum and we played a solid 61 minutes."

Matt Beleskey and Keaton Turkiewicz also scored for the Bulls (8-3-1-1), while Edward Pasquale made 27 saves in defeat.

Pasquale was on the bench for an extra attacker when Subban scored, and 67's defenceman Thomas Kiriakou was in the penalty box after he shot the puck over the glass with just over a minute remaining in regulation.
