WINDSOR, Ont. - The Windsor Spitfires received goals from six different players en route to a 6-1 victory over the Niagara IceDogs on Saturday night in the Ontario Hockey League.

The win was the Spitfires' 18th in their last 19 games and their second in two games against Niagara this season.

Adam Henrique, Greg Nemisz, Scott Timmins, Taylor Hall, Austin Watson and Harry Young all scored for Windsor (47-6-0-1) while Andrei Loktionov, Rob Kwiet all chipped in with two assists apiece.

Matthew Maione had the lone goal for Niagara (22-23-4-5).

Following a fight between Windsor's Justin Shugg and Niagara's Jay Gilbert midway through the third period, Spitfires goaltender Josh Unice raced down the ice to accept IceDogs netminder Jeremy Smith's invitation to drop the gloves. Unice, however, never made it down to Smith as he tripped over the centre ice redline and was stopped by a linesman.

Both goaltenders received game misconducts despite not actually fighting as they both removed their helmets as they prepared to fight. Mark Visentin replaced Smith and Andrew Engelage replaced Unice in the net. Neither replacement goaltender allowed a goal the rest of the game.

The Spitfires fired 40 shots at the pair of Icedogs' netminders while Niagara had 20 shots in the game.
