WINDSOR, Ont. – On Thursday night, the Saginaw Spirit (19-22-6-2, 9th Western Conference) take on the Windsor Spitfires (30-11-5-2, 4th Western Conference) from the WFCU Centre in Windsor, Ontario.
The Spirit are coming off of a loss Wednesday night against the West Division-leading Soo Greyhounds by a 5-2 margin. After a goal in the first minute of the hockey game and ten shots in the first period, the Spirit mustered only 14 shots on goal in the final 40 minutes. Brendan Bonello made 31 saves in the losing effort for the Spirit.
The Spits are going through one their toughest stretches of the season. With many injuries and players missing time for the CHL Top Prospects Game, Windsor is 5-3-1-1 in their last ten games. In those 10 contests is a 3-2 loss last Saturday night to the Saginaw Spirit. Last time out, the Spitfires knocked off the Hamilton Bulldogs 5-3 at the WFCU Centre. Windsor used three third period goals to erase a 2-1 deficit in the second period.
The Spirit are 1-2-2-0 against the Spitfires this season, with their only victory coming at The Dow Event Center. The last time the Spirit were victorious in Windsor was back on December 18, 2014, a 2-1 hockey game.
