OTTAWA - The Tyler Toffoli, Thomas Kiriakou and Cody Lindsay line combined for 11 points Friday night as the Ottawa 67's beat the Barrie Colts 6-3 in Ontario Hockey League action.

Logan Couture also scored for the 67's (36-21-5-2), who honoured assistant coach Bert O'Brien before the game. O'Brien will retire at the end of the season following 22 years behind the 67's bench as Brian Kilrea's assistant.
"I'd have retired every night if I could get that out of the team in the first period," O'Brien said.
The Colts (29-31-3-1) scored three times in the second period to make a game of it. Peter Stevens, Josh Brittain and David Mazurek got the visitors close before Lindsay scored midway through the third.
"They're a good team," O'Brien said of the Colts. "They played (Thursday) night and travelled so that was the bus legs that you saw in the first period."
