OTTAWA - Logan Couture had a power-play goal and a short-handed goal Sunday to lead the Ottawa 67's to a 3-2 victory over the Kitchener Rangers in Ontario Hockey League action.
Former Ranger Adam Zamec also scored against the team that traded him to the 67's last week as Ottawa (8-9-0-2) pulled off an upset of the No. 2-ranked team in the Canadian Hockey League, which had a 10-game win streak stopped.
"Every single time we play one of the better teams we seem to play up to their level and when we play the weaker ones we play down to their level," Couture said. "We've got to work that hard every single game. That's the frustrating part with us."
Ottawa jumped out to a big first-period lead, chasing Rangers starting goaltender Mavric Parks from the net with three goals on seven shots, and handed Kitchener (16-3-0-0) a rare loss.
The Rangers got goals in the third period from Scott Timmins and Justin Azevedo, but couldn't get any closer.
Of their three defeats on the season, two have come at the hands of the 67's.
Ottawa also scored a road victory over Kitchener on Oct. 12. The Barrie Colts are the only other team to have knocked off the Rangers this year.
Adam Courchaine stopped 32 shots to pick up the victory in goal.
Regular starter Josh Unice replaced Parks in the Rangers' net and stopped all 20 shots he faced.
