WINDSOR, Ont. - Conor O'Donnell scored two goals and added an assist as the Windsor Spitfires downed the London Knights 5-1 in Saturday night Ontario Hockey League Action.

Justin Shugg, Adam Henrique and Harry Young also scored for the Spitfires.

Windsor led 4-0 after two periods but Phil McRae broke Andrew Engelage's shutout bid with his 17th goal of the season for the Knights.

Both teams were missing a number of key personnel.

Windsor was without OHL scoring leader Taylor Hall and defenceman Ryan Ellis who were away attending the training camp of the Canadian National Junior Hockey Team. Nazem Kadri of the Knights was also there.

Windsor was also missing Andrei Loktionov who missed his eighth consecutive game due to a knee injury. London's Steve Tarasuk and Tucker Hunter were both sitting out the second game of their two-game league suspensions.

The win was the Spitfires' third in three games against the Knights this season.

Trevor Cann made 36 saves while taking the loss in net for the visitors.

Engelage made 31 saves enroute to picking up his 23rd win of the season. Both Engelage and Henrique were making their return to the Windsor lineup after sitting out the team's previous game due to the flu.
