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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
