The Ottawa 67’s (0-3-0) remain winless after a doubly costly 4-2 loss to the Niagara Ice Dogs on Friday Night.  Goaltender Keegan Wilson left the game at the conclusion of the first period after tweaking his groin, and although Jacob Blair was solid in relief, Niagara’s offence was too much as they came back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat the home side.

67's Sweep Home-And-Home With Gatineau

With a second consecutive win over the Gatineau Olympiques to sweep the two-game preseason series, it's clear that the Ottawa 67's are able to put the puck in the net, but it's also clear that the key to this team's success will be on the penalty kill.
