WINDSOR, Ont. - Jaroslav Pavelka stopped 43 shots as the Windsor Spitfires edged the visiting Saginaw Spirit 2-1 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League play.
Trevor Murphy scored the winning goal for the Spitfires (10-10-5) with less than three minutes remaining in the third period while Emerson Clark added a first-period goal.
Murphy, who was acquired from the Peterborough Petes as part of a four-player trade on Thursday, one-timed a cross-ice pass from Josh Ho-Sang while parked at the back of the right face-off circle for the game winner.
Justin Kea scored in the second period for the Spirit (10-13-3).
Jamie improves every game and every year. I've only been with him for two years, but as a player and as a person it seems like every week he's getting stronger and better, and becoming a better leader and better captain. He wants the team to be so successful that he's making himself better as a player.
