WINDSOR, Ont. - Taylor Hall capped a five-point night with a goal 4:15 into overtime to lift the Windsor Spitfires to a 7-6 win over the Oshawa Generals in Ontario Hockey League action Tuesday.

Windsor's Jakub Kovar made 29 saves in beating his former club.

The game had been rescheduled from Feb. 24, and pushed the Spits' winning streak to three games.

Greg Nemisz had two goals and an assist and Josh Bailey had goal and three assists, while Conor O'Donnell and Jordan Nolan all added a goal and an assist for the Spitfires.

John Tavares had four assists and Brett MacLean scored his league-leading 52nd and 53rd goals of the season to lead the offensive attack for the Generals.

Ryan McGinnis, Tyler Taylor and Jeff Hayes and Dale Mitchell also scored for Oshawa.

Mitchell's power-play marker with 38 seconds left in the third period sent the game into extra time.

The game was the second and last of the season between these two clubs who orchestrated a blockbuster deal just before the January 10 OHL trade deadline.

The Spits acquired Kovar, left-winger Justin Shugg and two second round draft choices in return for rugged right-winger Ryan Baldwin and star netminder Michal Neuvirth.

Windsor won 7-2 on the road over Oshawa last month.

Neuvirth faced 57 shots while taking the loss, the second time he has lost to his former teammates as a member of the Generals.
