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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
