Binnington stops 26 shots as the Attack blank the Spitfires 1-0

OWEN SOUND, Ont. - Jordan Binnington stopped all 26 shots he faced as the Owen Sound Attack blanked the visiting Windsor Spitfires 1-0 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League action.

The 19-year-old goaltender also made 35 saves to shutout the Kitchener Rangers on Saturday and has now gone 126:12 seconds without giving up a goal. The last goal Binnington gave up was on Nov. 16th in a 5-2 loss to the London Knights.

Binnington is now 13-3-3 with a 2.18 goals-against average and .932 save percentage in 19 games this season for Owen Sound.

Cameron Brace scored the lone goal for the Attack (16-4-3), who currently sit atop the Western Conference standings, and it came by way of a penalty shot.

It was also Brace's fifth game winner of the season, which leads the OHL.

Jordan DeKort stopped 23-of-24 shots in a losing cause for the Spitfires (9-9-5), who have dropped back-to-back outings.

Neither club had any success with its power play as Owen Sound went 0-for-1 and Windsor 0-for-7.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
