Then, he did it again.Subban scored his record-setting 20th goal of the season and followed it up with his 21st — 25 seconds later — to help the Bulls end an eight-game losing streak on home ice with a 7-5 win over the Peterborough Petes Saturday night at Yardmen Arena.Before Saturday night, no Belleville rearguard had scored more than 19 goals in one season. That mark was established by Shawn Lalonde during the 2008-09 OHL campaign."It's been in the back of my mind," said Subban. "The guys made it easier for me and I was glad I was able to do it in a win too. Coming into the OHL, my main goal was to win a Memorial Cup — and it still is — but I wanted to make an impact too."Bulls GM-coach George Burnett said Subban is now in a class by himself."It's awesome," said Burnett. "He's now at the top of a long list of high-profile guys who've come ahead of him here, so that's a feather in Jordan's cap. A lot of those guys went on to play for a long time in the NHL."Subban's 20th goal came during a Belleville power play at 13:27 of the second period, giving Bulls a 4-3 lead. His 21st, at 13:52, proved to be the game-winner.Niki Petti and David Tomasek assisted on Subban's 20th; Michael Cramarossa and Brett Gustavsen drew helpers on the 21st.Cramarossa, with a pair, Matt Luff, Maurizio Colella and Gustavsen also scored for Belleville. David Tomasek (2), Trent Fox, Adam Laishram, Cole Candella, Brett Welychka and Gustavsen picked up the other assists.Peterborough got goals from Michael Clarke, with two, Matt Spencer, Logan DeNoble and Jonathan Ang. Eric Cornel had two helpers.Tied 1-1 after 20 minutes, the OHL Eastern Conference rivals were knotted up again, 3-3 in the second period, before Subban went to work. Clarke narrowed the gap to 5-4 late in the frame, then Cramarossa and Gustavsen sandwiched third-period markers around Clarke's second of the night to secure the Belleville victory.Veteran backstop Charlie Graham turned aside 29 shots for the W in the Belleville net. Bulls fired 42 shots at the Peterborough cage, with Dylan Wells and Matthew Mancina both seeing action in goal for the Petes.Bulls improve their sixth-place record in the conference to 22-25-7 for 51 points while ninth-place Peterborough falls to 20-27-5 (45).
