BRAMPTON, Ont. - Mark Cundari's goal at 4:21 of overtime capped off a Windsor Spitfires come-from-behind 3-2 win over the Brampton Battalion in Ontario Hockey League action Sunday afternoon.

Harry Young and Eric Wellwood also had goals for Windsor (19-3-3), while Michael Nishi made 14 saves.

Thomas Stajan and Ian Watters had markers for Brampton (9-10-3), while Patrick Killeen stopped 33 shots.

Windsor has not had a loss in regulation time since Oct. 11, compiling a 13-0-2 record in that span.

The game was the first between the two teams since last spring's OHL Championship Series, which Windsor took four games to one. The Spitfires went on to win the Memorial Cup in Rimouski.

The Spitfires opened scoring 1:17 into Sunday's game when Harry Young's point shot beat a screened Patrick Killeen.

Brampton pulled even at 6:55 of the opening period when Thomas Stajan poked home a loose puck in the crease off a Matt McLeod shot that was initially stopped by Michael Nishi.

Both teams traded power play goals the rest of the way. Ian Watters tucked a shot under the crossbar from close range for his first career OHL goal at 17:36 of the second, vaulting the Troops into the lead.

Then at the 16:25 mark of the third, Eric Wellwood potted the rebound off a quick Dale Mitchell shot.

Cundari's winner came during a stretch of three-on-three play, with each team having a player in the penalty box.
