WINDSOR, Ont. - Tyler Seguin scored two goals and Matt Hackett made 46 saves as the Plymouth Whalers stunned the Windsor Spitfires 6-3 on Thursday, taking a 1-0 lead in their Ontario Hockey League Western Conference semifinal series.
Windsor native Brett Bellemore, Joel Gaynor and Whalers captain Chris Terry had the other goals for the Whalers, who won for the first time in five games in Windsor this season.
Dale Mitchel, with two, and Scott Timmins - with his first of the post season - had Windsor's goals.
Mitchell opened the scoring in the game for the Spitfires on a power play when he deposited a wrist shot past Hackett.
Terry replied just 20 seconds later when he converted a pass from Matt Caria on a 2-on-1 play.
Seguin scored his first of the game before the end of the first period, putting the Whalers up 2-1 after twenty minutes of play.
Plymouth chased Windsor starter Josh Unice after Bellemore's short-handed goal put the Whalers up 4-2 despite being outshot 35-17 with five minutes left in the second period.
Andrew Engelage replaced Unice in the Windsor net. The move was the third time in five games that the Spitfires have had to pull their starting netminder during the post-season.
The two Windsor goaltenders combined for 24 saves on the night.
