67's Drop Pre-Season Opener in Kemptville

The Ottawa 67's dropped their first 2013 pre-season game 4-1 to the Kingston Frontenacs on Tuesday night in Kemptville.  Travis Konecny had the lone goal in his first game with the Barberpoles and Clint Windsor had 46 stops in a losing effort.

With the game at a neutral site rink and none of the Fan Blog writers available to make it, this game's story will be told through the eyes, and tweets, of a few people who were able to take in the game as well as the 67's Twitter account.

The 67's continue their pre-season this weekend, facing off against the QMJHL's Gatineau Olympiques in Rockland on Friday and Hull on Saturday.  Both games will have regular game reports at the Fan Blog.

2-0 Kingston  .. 5 (minutes) in.  67's showing some fight late.

3-0 Fronts. 67's are the slower team. Break outs really hurting us. (Dulong), (Salituro), (Windsor) are playing well.

4-1 After two.. Shots are 39 to 18 for Fronts

Great opener by the #67s lots of faces were much improved.


Fronts go up 1 to 0 early. Povorozniouk capitalizes on a giveaway in front of the net.

Kingston scores again with Pawley burying the rebound in front. Shots 14 to 3 just over 5 minutes in to the first for Kingston.

67's almost put one in on the powerplay but Kingston defender sweeps it away at the goal line. Still 2-0 with 6:39 left in the first. 

Studnicka and Doggett with a nice little tilt. Call that one even. 1:28 left in first

Konecny with a great chance on a breakaway but Helvig comes up with the pad save.

(Tyler) Hill and Konecny block multiple shots on the penalty kill. Not holding anything back. Game is getting physical!

4-1 final for Kingston. Shots 50-26 for the Fronts. Tonight's 3 stars: 1st: Kujawinski 2nd: Konecny 3rd: McKeown
