Three unanswered goals in a span of just 4:06 in the second half of the second period lifted the Lindsay Muskies into a 4-2 lead and they went on to down the Kingston Voyageurs 6-2 in an Ontario Junior Hockey League game Thursday night at the Invista Centre.

It was just Kingston’s second loss in regulation time, with its other loss also coming on a 6-2 score, on Sept. 18 to the Whitby Fury. The Voyageurs have gained at least a point in their other seven games, for a total of 11.

Lindsay, meanwhile, has won just twice in six games after being moved from the North Division to the East Division in a minor off-season league realignment.

Brandon Carr started Lindsay’s second-period surge, scoring a power-play goal at 12:45. Kalvyn Watson followed 2:30 later, and Ben Sellars made it a 4-2 game at 16:51.

Watson, at 3:36 of the third period, and Sellars, with a short-handed empty-net goal at 13:41, completed the scoring.

Kingston had emerged from the first period with a 2-1 lead. Brady Rawn, on a power play, opened the scoring at 12:01 with his first goal of the season, and after Ethan Ramsden evened the score a little over three minutes later, Nick Zarichny tallied at 17:27 to put the Vees ahead again. It was also Zarichny’s first goal.

Kingston, which hosts the Cobourg Cougars next Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Invista Centre, outshot Lindsay 35-31 in the game, including 14-4 in the third period.
