OTTAWA - Thomas Nesbitt had two goals and an assist Sunday and Logan Couture added a goal and two assists to lift the Ottawa 67's to a 3-1 victory over the Kingston Frontenacs in the Ontario Hockey League.

Couture converted Nesbitt's pass on a 2-on-1 break in the first period and,

18 seconds after Matthew Kang tied the score for Kingston on a second-period power play, Couture returned the favour to set up Nesbitt.

The duo combined again for Nesbitt's second goal early in the third period.

The other member of the line, Jamie McGinn, had three assists.

"I work hard for those guys and they give me a lot of great opportunities and it's nice to finally capitalize on them and help out a little bit," said Nesbitt, who was pushed up to Ottawa's top line when Matt Lahey suffered a concussion in Friday's victory over Niagara.

Adam Courchaine made 21 saves to pick up the win in goal for the 67's (11-11-0-2), who won for the second straight game and third time in their past four contests.

It's only the second time all season Ottawa has managed to string together consecutive victories.

Anthony Peters stopped 24 shots for the Frontenacs (7-15-0-1), who have lost

their last two games and dropped four of their past five.
