It was another rough weekend on the road for the Niagara IceDogs.
The IceDogs, who dropped two of three on the road last weekend, lost a pair of games this weekend, 6-2 at Kingston Friday and 7-2 at Ottawa Saturday afternoon.
The IceDogs are now 4-10-3 and sit in the ninth place in the Ontario Hockey League Eastern Conference with 11 points. The top eight teams in each conference qualify for the post-season.
“Obviously, it was a tough weekend,” Niagara coach Daniel Fitzgerald said. “We aren’t happy with where we are right now, but we feel like we can turn the corner here. Our effort needs to be more consistent. Right now we are in and out of these games and that’s not going to get it done.”
The 67’s jumped out to a 3-1 lead after one period before adding one more in the second to go into the third up 4-2.
Declan Waddick and Gerard Keane, with his first as an IceDog, scored for Niagara.
Josh Rosenzweig made 50 saves in a losing effort.
The IceDogs were playing without Anthony Agostinelli, Juan Copeland, Evan Klein, Andrew Wycisk and Rodwin Dionicio.
Friday in Kingston, the IceDogs fell behind 5-0 by the halfway point of the game before Waddick scored late in the second. Aidan Castle also scored for Niagara.
Owen Flores faced 30 shots and took the loss in net.
The IceDogs are back home Thursday versus Saginaw.
