The Petes are the only Eastern Conference team with a winning record against Ottawa this season, and the only team in the OHL to defeat them more than once.
After scoring his 100th career goal in Thursday’s win, Akil Thomas is looking for his 200th assist and 300th point. He is currently on a 13 game point streak.
Ottawa has five players in the top 15 in scoring: Rossi (91), Quinn (69), Hoefenmayer (69), Garreffa (67) and Keating (67).
Nick Robertson (41) is just two goals back of the OHL’s goal scoring leader in Ottawa’s Jack Quinn (43), having played 11 less games than the 67.
The 67’s are on a 10 game winning streak. Their last loss was at the PMC on January 11, when the Petes shut them out 4-0.
