Fronts stall against 67’s, rematch tomorrow night
The Kingston Frontenacs (40-21-4-1) had their three-game winning stretch ended at TD Place tonight in a 5-0 loss to the Ottawa 67’s (28-31-2-6). Goalie Aidan Spooner faced 42 shots in a noble effort, holding the home squad to just two goals on 32 shots over the first forty minutes, but Kingston’s offense was held in check by First Star Max Donoso making 26 saves for the shutout. The Black and Gold has two games remaining in the 2021-22 regular season wrapping up Sunday afternoon in Peterborough.
The Barber Poles took a 2-0 first intermission lead on goals by Brady Stonehouse (18) and Vinzenz Rohrer (25) being outshot 16-9 and 42 -25 overall. After a scoreless second period, Second Star Jack Beck (20,21) would pot two with Wil Gerrior (8) adding an assist enroute to the five-goal win for Ottawa. With the two points, the 67’s tied the Generals for sixth place in the Eastern Conference and a date with the Frontenacs in the first round of the playoffs. Oshawa was winning 2-1 over Mississauga in the third period at time of writing.
The Frontenacs will finish the season series with Ottawa tomorrow night at Leon’s Centre with a 7-3-1-0 record with the 67’s.
