The Erie Otters continued to give up goals in bunches in their home opener.

Boone Jenner had two goals and two assists Friday as the Oshawa Generals beat the winless Otters 7-4 in the Ontario Hockey League.

Lucas Lessio, with a goal and three assists, also had a four-point night for the Generals.

Elsewhere in the OHL it was: Niagara 5, Belleville 3; Sarnia 7, Sudbury 2; Barrie 6, Peterborough 5 (OT); London 6, Plymouth 3; Guelph 5, Owen Sound 3; Sault Ste. Marie 3, Kitchener 2; and Ottawa 8, Saginaw 3.

At Erie, Pa., the Otters (0-4-0) have allowed 28 goals in their season-opening four-game losing streak, including a 10-2 loss in Guelph on Friday.

Niklas Jensen had a goal and two assists, while Colin Sullentrop, Josh Graves and Sebastian Uvira also scored for Oshawa.

Greg McKegg, Nick Betz, Sondre Olden and Brett Thompson scored for Erie.

The Generals (2-2-0) broke open a 3-3 tie on Jenner's second goal of the night 1:45 into the third period. Their lead reached 5-3 on Graves' goal less than three minutes later.

Dan Altshuller made 31 saves for Oshawa.

Erie goaltender Tyson Teichmann, who has rotated in net with Chris Festarini so far this season, surrendered all seven goals.

The "We Want Rammer" chants, referring to Otters over-age goaltender Ramis Sadikov, began shortly after the Generals' sixth goal late in the third. Sadikov, who is on the trade market, hasn't dressed for a game since returning from Detroit Red Wings camp earlier in the week.

Rookie winger Olden's second goal of the season ??? and Erie's second power-play goal of the game ??? tied the score at 3-3 late in the second.

Jenner's goal, off Lessio's third assist of the game, handed the Generals the lead for good and headlined a four-goal third.
