NHL.com @NHL

GUELPH, Ont. - Michael Giugovaz stopped all 27 shots his way and Logan Stanley's second-period goal was all Windsor needed as the Spitfires cruised to a 4-0 victory over the host Guelph Storm on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Stanley put the Spitfires (12-4-3) ahead 1-0, 10:13 into the second, and Cristiano DiGiacinto and Aaron Luchuk added a goal apiece to make it a three-goal lead after 40 minutes.

Jalen Chatfield rounded out the Windsor offence with a goal at 10:26 of the third while Logan Brown tacked on two assists.

Justin Nichols kicked out 34-of-38 shots for the Storm (2-14-1), who have just one win in their last 12 games and sit last in the league.

With just five seconds remaining in regulation, three fights broke out ? including both goaltenders going at it. In the end, Windsor's Chatfield and Guelph's Luke Burghardt received fighting majors while Giugovaz, Nichols, Stanley and Storm winger Givani Smith were assessed game misconducts for being the second, and third fight on the same play.
