67's Improve October Goal Total To 16, Come Back To Beat Owen Sound

A day after cracking one of the OHL's elite between the pipes, the Ottawa 67's continued their offensive outburst with a 7-5 comeback win in Owen Sound on Sunday.

Dante Salituro scored three times in a six-minute span early in the final frame -- a tying goal from Owen Sound's Jaden Lindo the only thing to break a natural hattrick for Salituro -- to supply the Barberpoles with some road dramatics.

If it weren't for a couple of rough patches, it would have been a blowout, as Liam Herbst looked at times like he was going to have one of his better performances of the year.

He still wound up with 32 stops, but Ottawa's defensive breakdowns looked like they would cost them again.

Owen Sound scored three times late in the second to go ahead, a late-game collapse looking inevitable.

Herbst shut the door for the most part in the third as Ottawa's offence came back to life.

Travis Konecny didn't get into the goal column, but the 67's best forward on the ice had three assists.
Nathan Todd, Artur Tyanulin, Ben Fanjoy and Trent Mallette tallied for the visitors.

The 67's go on a southern roadtrip to Windsor, Flint and Saginaw next weekend.

OA Watch

Sam Studnicka was out today, although Ottawa's center-ice depth didn't seem to falter as a result.  Regardless, Evan deHaan will quite possibly be next.

Whether or not it fits the cycle, being on the ice for five goals against as an overager won't sit well.

The 67's are finally winning and the deadline to cut an OA loose is still a couple of months away, but this isn't a problem that's getting any better in the near future.
