The Oshawa Generals got back on the winning track this weekend, with Zach Paputsakis backstopping them to a pair of wins and a return to .500 hockey.

The Gens, after thumping Ottawa 5-1 on the road Friday night and beating Peterborough 4-1 at the Tribute Communities Centre Sunday, still remain fourth in the East Division with a 10-10-3 record.

The team made it a perfect weekend Sunday when Brett Harrison’s late second period goal stood up as the winner as Oshawa beat the Petes. Harrison had a huge game for the Gens with two goals and four points and now has 15 goals on the season. Captain Ty Tullio and rookie Calum Ritchie, with his 10th of the year and first since returning from the Capital City Challenge U-17 tournament as the overtime hero, had the other goals.

Newcomer Stuart Rolofs and captain Ty Tullio led the Generals Friday in their win against the 67s with a goal and an assist each. Rolofs added a pair of helpers Sunday as well. Kevin Neidenz, with his first goal, and Harrison scored the others. Paputsakis had 26 saves in the victory.
