Vail with four points as the Spitfires down the Wolves 5-2

WINDSOR, Ont. - Brady Vail scored two goals and added two assists as the Windsor Spitfires defeated the visiting Sudbury Wolves 5-2 on Sunday afternoon in Ontario Hockey League action.

Vail scored his third and fourth goals of the season to lead the Spitfires (3-1-1) offensively while Kerby Rychel, Patrick Seiloff and Ben Johson all scored their first goals of the season for Windsor.

Trailing 4-0 early in the third period, Dominik Kahun and Dominik Kubalik struck 72 seconds apart for the Wolves (2-3-0).

Kubalik's marker came on an unassisted effort and seemed to shift the momentum in the game, but the Wolves could not further cut into the Spitfires' lead.

Jaroslav Pavelka made 26 saves to pick up the win as Joel Vienneau stopped 32 shots in a losing effort.

Special teams went a long way in deciding the outcome of the game. The Spitfires went 2-for-5 on the power play while the Wolves could not take advantage of either of their two chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
