WINDSOR, Ont. - Scott Timmins had two goals and an assist and Eric Wellwood notched three assists as the Windsor Spitfires pummelled the Sudbury Wolves 7-0 in Ontario Hockey League play Monday.

Rookie Windsor goaltender Troy Passingham made 28 saves to pick up his second career shutout in the last three games.

Still smarting from a 6-5 loss at home Sunday, the Spitfires (6-3-1) came out firing in the first period on goals by Justin Shugg, Mark Cundari, Taylor Hall and Timmins and outshooting the Wolves 23-9.

Sudbury goalie Alain Valiquette replaced starter Andrew Loverock but fared no better as he almost immediately surrendered goals to Cam Fowler and Timmins.

Austen Brassard, the Windsor, Ont., native who was the Spitfires' top pick last summer, also scored his first career OHL goal before a technical glitch caused the lights to go out in the spectator bowl at the Windsor Family Credit Union Centre with remaining six minutes of the second period.

The clubs played a scoreless final frame.

Loverock and Valiquette combined to make 42 saves for the Wolves (3-5-1).

Windsor star defenceman Ryan Ellis missed his second consecutive game with a wrist injury. Fellow rearguard Jesse Blacker was also out of the Windsor lineup with the flu.
