ERIE, Pa. - Andrew Fritsch scored the winner in the shootout as the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds beat the host Erie Otters 6-5 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Darnell Nurse scored twice for the Greyhounds (8-7-0), Nick Halagian had a goal and an assist and Colin Miller and David Broll added a single goal each.

Nick Cousins chipped in with three assists.

Connor Brown scored three times for the Otters (4-7-3) while Stephen Harper and Connor Crisp scored the others.

Matt Murray made 35 saves for the win as Oscar Dansk stopped 35 shots in a losing effort.

Sault Ste. Marie went 1-for-4 on the power play while Erie went 3-for-4.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
