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

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
