Methot and Courchaine lead the Ottawa 67s to 4-0 victory over the Erie Otters @NHLdotcom

OTTAWA - Matthieu Methot scored twice and Adam Courchaine made 38 saves for his second shutout of the season as the Ottawa 67's defeated the Erie Otters 4-0 at the Civic Centre on Sunday afternoon.

Jamie McGinn and Cody Lindsay also scored for the 67's (19-14-3), who were coming off a 7-1 loss to the Petes in Peterborough Saturday night.

The Otters (8-25-3) have now lost five straight including all three games on the road this weekend. Jaroslav Janus took the loss in spite of a 40-save performance.

"Hopefully we can get on a roll now," said Courchaine, who has now recorded shutouts in his last two Sunday starts.

"(Saturday) night was a tough one, It looked we didn't have any will to win. Perugini didn't get any help, but four goals helps a lot."

The Otters had two 5-on-3 advantages in the first period but were unable to convert.

"The shutout was made in the first period when Courchaine saved us," said 67's coach Brian Kilrea.
