ONTARIO–The San Jose Barracuda stretched their win streak to 11 games on Saturday with a 2-0 shutout over the Ontario Reign on the road.

Goaltender Troy Grosenick recorded 20 saves in the win while Adam Helewka and John McCarthy scored the only goals of the game, all for San Jose.

Helewak scored on a break in the first period, taking a pass from Buddy Robinson and pulling a forehand-to-backhand deke on the Reign goaltender to give the Barracuda a 1-0 lead.

Despite being outshot 13-4 in the second period, the Barracuda were able to double their lead, courtesy of McCarthy. The forward deflected a shot by Joakim Ryan into the net midway through the period to put San Jose ahead 2-0.

It could have been a 3-0 lead for the Barracuda entering the third, but Patrick McNally’s goal was called off due to goaltender interference.

They wouldn’t need it, though, as San Jose outshot Ontario 17-2 in the third – and 31-20 overall – to finish off the win.

Grosenick recorded his AHL-leading seventh shutout of the season, while the Barracuda kept rolling with their eighth straight road win and 11th consecutive victory overall.

San Jose will look to make it 12 in a row on Monday at home against Texas.
