NHL.com @NHL

The Windsor Spitfires needed just one period to erase the memories of a home defeat a day earlier.

Scott Timmins had two goals and Eric Wellwood notched three assists as the 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 to Sarnia on Sunday, the Spitfires (6-3-1) came out firing in the first on goals by Justin Shugg, Mark Cundari, Taylor Hall and Timmins, outshooting the Wolves 23-9 in the period.

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 at the Windsor Family Credit Union Centre with six minutes left in the second period.

In other OHL action Monday, it was: Kingston 4 Sault Ste. Marie 2, Mississauga-St. Michael's 2 Brampton 1, Owen Sound 2 Barrie 1 and Oshawa 7 Kingston 2

At Windsor, Ont., the clubs played a scoreless final period.

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