Oshawa Generals losing streak now at six games after back-to-back road losses


Published March 7, 2022 at 9:22 am

The Oshawa Generals losing streak is another weekend older and now at six games after being outplayed twice on the road: 8-4 to the Mississauga Steelheads Friday night, followed by a 6-2 thrashing at the hands of arch-rival Peterborough the following night.

On Friday Stuart Rolofs second goal of the game early in the second kept the game close but Mississauga responded with five straight to put the game out of reach before the period was over.

Goals by Ty Tullio (30) and Ryan Stepien in the third were too little, too late.

Luca DelBelBelluz scored three times to lead the Steelheads while Zach Paputsakis and Patrick Leaver shared the loss in net for the Generals.

Oshawa had high hopes for redemption the next night but J.R. Avon’s four-goal game put an end to those dreams as the Petes rolled over the Generals.

Cameron Butler and Brett Harrison scored for Oshawa while Leaver allowed all five goals on 22 shots.

The Generals are still hanging on to third in the East at 24-23-5 but have slipped to sixth in the conference, one behind Barrie and just one ahead of Ottawa.

Oshawa, losers of nine of the past ten games, have the week off to re-group before a busy weekend where they will visit Kingston Friday and come home to play Peterborough Sunday before the much-anticipated outdoor game at Tim Horton’s Field in Hamilton against the Bulldogs on Monday night.
