Patrick Leaver of the Oshawa Generals makes a save during the Oshawa Generals victory over the Kingston Frontenacs on Sunday, April 3, 2022.

The Oshawa Generals are heading back to the playoffs.

The Generals clinched an Ontario Hockey League playoff spot over the weekend, as the team swept a pair of games.

The team sits in sixth place in the Eastern Conference with 64 points, just two points ahead of the Ottawa 67’s. The Generals have played 64 games, while Ottawa has played 65 games.

The Barrie Colts are in fifth place with 72 points.

If the playoffs were to start today, Oshawa would face the Kingston Frontenacs, the third-place team.

Over the weekend, the Generals played a pair against Kingston, winning one in a shootout and the other in overtime.

Last week, the Generals played a couple of week night games, losing both. They were beaten 3-2 on Thursday, March 31 to the first-place Hamilton Bulldogs.

Played at Hamilton, Oshawa was badly outshoot 41-12. Ryan Stepien and Matthew Buckley scored for the Generals.

On Tuesday, March 29, the Generals dropped a 4-3 shootout game to the 67’s. Ty Tullio, who potted his 36th goal of the season, Cooper Way and Brett Harrison scored for Oshawa.

In Kingston on Friday, April 1, the Generals won 4-3 in a shootout, with Jordyn Ertel, Calum Ritchie and Harrison scoring during regular time. Tullio and Stepien scored in the shootout, while goaltender Patrick Leaver stopped three of the four Kingston shots.

At the Tribute Communities Center on Sunday, April 3, the Generals came out on top 3-2 in overtime. Cameron Butler scored one, while Tullio had a pair, including the overtime winner.

Leaver was again in net on Sunday and he earned praise from co-coach Kurtis Foster.

“Leaver was amazing in this game, primarily in the first period,” Foster said after the game. “Kingston has some great offensive players, and if it wasn’t for Leaver, we would have been down a few early in the game.”

Oshawa has four more games to close out the regular season. The next game is Sunday, April 10 at 6:05 pm at the TCC against Hamilton.
