OTTAWA - Philip Lane scored twice as the Brampton Battalion defeated the Ottawa 67?s 4-1 on Friday night in the Ontario Hockey League.
It was the first loss in five home games for the 67?s (5-2-1). The Battalion (5-2-0), meanwhile, has won both their games away from the Powerade Centre.
?We never moved our feet and we let them dictate the play,? said 67?s forward Tyler Toffoli, who had an assist in the game and now has a point in all six games he?s played in this season.
?We can?t win playing that way."
After a scoreless first period, Barclay Goodrow gave the Battalion a 1-0 lead and Lane doubled that advantage before the end of the second period.
Sean Monahan pulled the 67?s to within a goal 11 minutes into the third period and also extended his point streak to eight games.
Mitchell Porowski, who spent the last three seasons playing across the Ottawa River for the Gatineau Olympiques of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, put the Battalion up 3-1 with less than five minutes to play before Lane sealed the win with an empty-netter with 16 seconds to play.
Keegan Wilson made 22 saves in the win while Petr Mrazek turned aside 19 of the Battalions??? 23 shots.
