BRAMPTON, Ont. - Adam Bateman's first OHL goal 2:20 into overtime lifted the Windsor Spitfires to a 1-0 victory over the Brampton Battalion on Sunday afternoon.
The teams were unable to produce much offence. Windsor goaltender John Cullen stopped all 28 shots he faced while Keegan Wilson made 19 saves for the Battalion.
Bateman ended the game with a wrist shot from the blue-line that got past Wilson. Nick Ebert and Boston Bruins prospect Alexander Khokhlachev picked up the assists.
Windsor and Brampton each failed to capitalize on five power-play opportunities.
The game had an alumni feel to it as former Battalion members Jay McClement and Matt Duchene, currently with the NHL's Colorado Avalanche, were on hand to participate in the pre-game ceremonial puck drop. The Avs are in Toronto to play the Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre on Monday night.
"It's really nice to come back and see some familiar faces," said Duchene, who played for Brampton from 2007-09.
