Cody Payne, Dylan Sadowy and Eric Locke replied for the Spirit (23-21-5). Locke's third-period goal was on a penalty shot.

Matt Murray made 42 saves for Sault Ste. Marie.

Jake Paterson allowed four goals on 20 shots in the opening period for Saginaw. Nikita Serebryakov went the rest of the way, allowing two goals on 22 shots.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
