Jaroslav Pavelka makes 32 saves as Spitfires down Steelheads 2-1

WINDSOR, Ont. - Jaroslav Pavelka made 32 saves Thursday as the Windsor Spitfires defeated the Mississauga Steelheads 2-1 in the Ontario Hockey League.

Sam Studnicka and Alexander Khokhlachev had the goals for Windsor (17-19-6), while Sam Babintsev replied for Mississauga (20-18-4).

Tyson Teichmann made 16 saves in a losing effort for the Steelheads.

Studnicka opened the scoring for the Spitfires at 13:34 of the first period with his second goal of the season when he one-timed a pass from Emerson Clark while parked in the high slot.

Khokhlachev upped Windsor's lead to 2-0 at 3:14 of the second period with his fourth goal in four games since returning from the Kontinental Hockey League last week.

Babintsev scored his fourth goal of the season for Mississauga at 17:12 of the third but the Steelheads would get no closer.

The Spitfires have won three of their last four games, in addition to a shootout loss, since ending a seven-game losing streak last week. Pavelka has a .965 save percentage in those four contests.

Windsor was 0-for-2 on the power play, while Mississauga was scoreless in four chances.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
