Trafford scores winner as the Spirit edge the Frontenacs 2-1

SAGINAW, Mich. - Terry Trafford scored the game winner with just over four minutes to play in the third period as the Saginaw Spirit beat the visiting Kingston Frontenacs 2-1 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Both Trafford and Vincent Trocheck had a goal and an assist for Saginaw (11-13-3).

Warren Steele scored the lone goal for Kingston (13-11-0).

Nikita Serebryakov stopped all but one of the 33 shots he faced for his first career OHL win as Colin Furlong made 21 saves in a losing cause.

The Spirit failed to score on their only power-play opportunity while the Frontenacs went 1-for-4.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
