OHL Roundup: Daniel Catenacci's two goals power Attack past Spitfires 6-0

Daniel Catenacci scored twice as the Owen Sound Attack blanked the Windsor Spitfires 6-0 on Thursday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Jordan Binnington made 28 saves to pick up his 31st win of the season for the Attack (42-18-6), setting a new single-season victories record for the Owen Sound franchise. The shutout was Binnington's seventh of the campaign.

Cody Ceci, Cameron Brace, Daniel Zweep and Artur Gavrus had the other goals for the Attack, who swept the four-game season series with the Spitfires (26-32-8).

Catenacci and Brace both finished the game with plus-4 ratings.

Windsor starting goalie Jordan Dekort made 18 saves before being pulled just over five minutes into the second period. He was replaced by Jaroslav Pavelka who made 22 saves including a third period penalty shot by Gemel Smith.

Catenacci scored his second goal of the game and 38th of the season on a short-handed, unassisted effort in the second period when he scooped up a loose puck just outside the Owen Sound blue-line and raced in all alone before rifling a wrist shot over the blocker of Pavelka.

Binngton's shutout was his third of the season against the Spitfires. The St. Louis Blues prospect did not allow a goal against Windsor in 189 consecutive minutes this season.

Elsewhere in the OHL it was: Brampton 5 Niagara 2; Saginaw 3 Sarnia 2 (OT) and Barrie 4 Kingston 2.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
