Brett Cook each added two assists in Erie's second straight win.
They broke Friday's game open with four second-period goals, which turned a 2-1 lead early in the period into a 6-2 advantage. The Otters scored those goals on 25 shots against goaltender Neil Conway.
Kory Nagy and Brett Parnham scored for the Generals (21-23-1-4), which have lost five straight. Parnham's second-period goal snapped the club's goal-scoring drought at 149 minutes two seconds.
Jaroslav Janus stopped 37 shots to earn the win, while Neil Conway stopped 17 shots in defeat.
