Ottawa got all of its offence from its top line, but after beating the Niagara IceDogs 5-2 on Sunday the 67's head coach couldn't help but spread around the praise.
"It's really easy to coach," said head coach Chris Byrne. "You don't have to do anything other than say 'next up, next up, next up'. The guys don't mind and you won't hear any of them complain."
Tyler Toffoli had three goals and two assists while his linemate, Shane Price, scored twice and added two assists for the 67's (14-6-4) in Ontario Hockey League action.
Andre Agozzino and Dougie Hamilton scored for the IceDogs (11-10-2).
Petr Mrazek made 43 saves for the win as Mark Visentin allowed three goals on the first four shots he faced before being relieved by Christopher Festarini, who stopped 14-of-15 shots.
Ottawa failed to score on three power-play chances while Niagara scored once on four opportunities with the man advantage.
The 67's could only play with three lines, instead of their normal four, because of injuries depleting their line up.
Elsewhere in the OHL, it was Barrie 3, Kingston 1; Brampton 3, Sudbury 0; Owen Sound London; Windsor 5, Oshawa 2; Mississauga 6, Sault Ste. Marie 4.
At Ottawa, Toffoli opened the scoring at 2:46 of the first period, giving the 67's an early 1-0 lead.
Prince scored at 4:24 and 6:55 to make it 3-0 Ottawa and that was all it took for the IceDogs to pull Visentin.
With Festarini in goal for Niagara, Toffoli's scored his second goal of the game at 6:38 of the second period to make it 4-0.
Agozzino finally got the IceDogs on the board at 13:37, making it 4-1 for the 67's heading into the third period.
Friesen scored on the power play at 12:12 of the third but Toffoli completed the hat trick with an empty-net goal at 18:24, making it a 5-2 final for Ottawa.
