67's fall 4-3 to the Gens in regulation

Remy Giftopolous had two goals but it wasn't enough as the Ottawa 67's fell 4-3 to the Oshawa Generals on Sunday night.

Giftopolous opened the scoring at the 9:23 mark of the opening frame - a rare occurrence for the 67's to capitalize first. But with Connor Brown in the box for kneeing, Chris Carlisle took advantage of the opportunity and tied up the game at 1.

The Generals would add two more goals in the second period to take their first lead of the game. Cole Cassels (son of former 67 Andrew) and Scott Sabourin had the goals.

The 67's looked down, but the were not out. Brendan Bell & Remy Giftopolous combined to tie up the game at 3 midway through the period. That would mark Giftopolous' second of the game.

However, it was Cole Cassels that stole the show scoring the game winning goal at the 14:06 mark of the final frame.

Clint Windsor turned aside 40 shots while Ottawa-native Daniel Altshuller turned aside 30 shots for the win.

The 67's remain in 9th place in the East. They will have a 12 day break for the holidays before return on December 29th to face the Peterborough Petes. Another 4 point game as the 67's will try to build off their last win.
