DETROIT -- Brady Vail had a bit of an unconventional path to get here, but he certainly enjoyed his first experience playing hockey outdoors at Comerica Park.
Vail, a fourth-round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft (No. 94), had assists on three straight goals to help the Windsor Spitfires rally from an early deficit before hanging on for a 6-5 victory against the Saginaw Spirit in the first game of an Ontario Hockey League doubleheader Sunday at the home of the Detroit Tigers.
"Our power play has been firing well, and it was good to get us back in the game," Vail said. "I didn't know until after the game that I had [three assists]. I don't know what was going on towards the end, but we found a way to score the winner."
