Saginaw downed in the Soo, 4-1

Saginaw goalie Ryan Daniels turned aside 33 shots

It was the Saginaw Spirit of old Friday night as the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds topped the Spirit, 4-1, in an OHL pre-season game in the Soo.

Ryan Daniels made 33 saves in the loss and rookie Anthony Soboczynski netted Saginaw's lone tally.

"Throughout the game, we did a lot of good things," said Spirit general manager and head coach Bob Mancini. "We need to adjust better to the way the game is going to be called defensively. Offensively, we had good transition, even though you didn't see a lot of it on the scoreboard. We worked our patterns and concepts well. We were 1-0 even strength. We will quickly learn to adjust and not put ourselves in that position again."

The Spirit return to action tomorrow at 7:11 p.m. against the same Greyhounds for their only home game of the pre-season.
