WINDSOR, Ont. - Ryan Ellis scored the overtime-winner and Eric Wellwood scored twice in regulation as the Windsor Spitfires beat the Owen Sound Attack 5-4 on Thursday in OHL action.

Despite outshooting Owen Sound by a 17-8 margin, Windsor carried just a 1-0 lead into the second period by on a goal by newcomer Scott Timmins.

Andrew Engelage made 24 saves for Windsor (37-5-0-1).

The goal extended Timmins' point-scoring streak to four games since being acquired as part of a blockbuster deal with the Kitchener Rangers last week.

The Spitfires scored three times in the game's middle stanza on two by Wellwood and Taylor Hall, the league scoring leader's 25th goal of the season on an unassisted effort.

Andrew Wilkins and David Kolomatis scored for the Attack in the second period.

Michael Halmo and Kolomatis, with his second of the game, scored the only two goals of the third period to send the game into extra time.

Ellis, fresh of his participation in the CHL Top Prospects Game on Wednesday night, also chipped in with two assists.

The win was Engelage's league-leading 32nd of the season and tied him with current Carolina Hurricanes' puckstopper for the most in a single season in Windsor franchise history.

Tyler Beskorowany made 47 saves, many of them acrobatic, while taking the loss in goal for the visitors (16-16-6-4).
