Spitfires flying high after Engelage shuts out Belleville 1-0

NHL.com @NHL

Andrew Engelage is making a habit out of shutting teams down - and his Windsor Spitfires are making a habit out of winning this season, a habit they have no interest in breaking.

A second-period goal from Ryan Ellis was all Engelage needed to give the Spitfires their sixth straight victory, blanking the Belleville Bulls 1-0 in Ontario Hockey League action Saturday night.

The shutout was Engelage's third of the season and second in the last three games. The Oshawa, Ont., native has a goals-against average of 2.00 over 11 games, sitting in second place amongst OHL goaltenders behind Mississauga-St. Michael's Majors netminder Chris Carrozzi (1.85).

The win keeps Windsor (11-1-0-0) comfortably atop the OHL standings. The Spitfires have outscored their opponents 19-9 during their current six-game win streak. Their 22 points give them a seven-point cushion over the rest of the league.

Elsewhere in the OHL, it was: Kitchener 3, Sudbury 2 (OT); Owen Sound 4, Erie 1; Plymouth 4, Oshawa 3 (SO); Saginaw 4, Niagara 2; and Sarnia 5, Barrie 2.

At Belleville, Ont., Engelage stopped all 22 shots he faced, while Mike Murphy made 35 saves for the Bulls (7-4-0-1), who have only won one of their last five games after starting the season with six wins and one loss.
