Ross scores late as the Spirit edge the Storm

SAGINAW, Mich. - Garret Ross scored the winning goal with only 15 seconds remaining in regulation time as the Saginaw Spirit downed the visiting Guelph Storm 3-2 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Terry Trafford and Jason Shaw also scored for the Spirit (17-19-5) while Eric Locke chipped in with two assists.

Zack Mitchell and Cody McNaughton scored for the Storm (21-13-5), who have dropped three games in a row.

Darien Ekblad stopped 28-of-30 shots for his first-career OHL win as Keegan Wilson made 21 saves in a losing cause.

With the Storm on the power play, Mitchell let go a wrist shot from the slot that beat Ekblad top shelf on the glove side to open the scoring at 9:14.

The Spirit got on the board just 1:30 later as Trafford scored from in front of Guelph's net, however McNaughton put the Storm back in front at 16:29 after taking a pass from Brock Beukeboom.

Saginaw tied the game, again, at 13:29 of the third period when Shaw scored his first goal as a member of the Spirit after finishing off a nice three-way passing play from Ross and Locke.

Saginaw went 1 for 4 on the power play while Guelph scored once on five chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
