Weekend Wrap Up

Well, that was quite the weekend for the 67s! It started with a terrific 10 - 0 blowout of the Tavares-less Oshawa Generals. As good as Ottawa was, Oshawa was that bad. The black mark on the evening was the fractured ankle suffered by Ryan Hanes in an awkward fall after a fight with Oshawa's Tyler Taylor.

Then the 67s hopped on the bus for the trip to Sudbury. Apparently they ran into some bad weather and didn't roll into town until around 4AM. The game later that evening against the Wolves was pretty tight until all heck broke loose. It rained goals with Ottawa taking the game 8 - 3! Here's the game sheet. As with Friday night the scoring was spread around. Goals came from: Cody Lindsay, Julien Demers, Corey Cowick, Pieter Schinkelshoek (2), Anthony Nigro, Jon Carnevale, and Ryan Martindale. Assists came from: Pieter Schinkelshoek, Logan Couture, Derek Hartwick, Thomas Kiriakou (2), Martin Paryzek, Ryan Martindale, Dylan Anderson, Stephen Blunden and Travis Gibbons. The only guys not to register a point were Anthony Zanetti, Tyler Toffoli, Brian Birkhoff and the two goalies.

No time for celebration as they got on the bus again and headed for Sault Ste Marie for their 2:00 date with the Greyhounds. I understand that they ran into weather on that leg of the trip as well and didn't get into the Sault until quite late. I didn't see or listen to this game but suffice it to say that they won it. According to some Sault fans, their 'hounds were robbed by the ref. Here's where you will find that game sheet.

Finally it was time to return home. I would imagine that the ride was pretty quiet given the hours and efforts from the team in the previous 48 hours. 21 goals in three games, 52 points in total from all over the roster, 6 goals against, 5/22 on the PP, perfect on the 13 PKs, one short-handed goal scored, one penalty shot scored against. Gotta like those results.

Well done!!
