Coming off another disappointing three-loss weekend, the schedule maker has not done any favors for the Kingston Frontenacs, as they play four games in six days starting Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2019 at home against the Ottawa 67’s.
After Wednesday’s game, the Fronts will host the Mississauga Steelheads on the evening of Friday, Feb. 15 before travelling to Barrie for a Saturday night game with the Colts. Kingston finishes off the busy stretch of games with a Family Day matinee on Monday, Feb. 18 against the Kitchener Rangers.
This past weekend saw the Fronts play much better, however they were not rewarded with positive results. Their losing streak now stands at 11 and they have lost 17 of the 18 games played since January 1.
This past Friday night, Marshall Frappier was strong in net as the Fronts built a 3-1 lead over the visiting Peterborough Petes. However, a strong third period by the Petes including Nick Robertson’s second goal of the game saw the Petes tie things up with 2:35 left in the period. Overtime proved nothing and Peterborough’s Adam Timleck scored the game winning goal in the shootout.
Then, on Saturday, the Fronts had another strong showing in Owen Sound as Nick Wong and Tyler Burnie had 2 goals. However, it wasn’t enough as Owen Sound’s Aiden Dudas broke a 4-4 tie with his 20th goal of the season at 9:53 of the third period. The goal proved to be the game winner as the Attack scored an empty net goal with 36 seconds left in the game.
And on Sunday, the home team Guelph Storm scored early and often on their way to a 9-0 drubbing of the tired Frontenacs who were playing their eighth of nine games in three days.
