Andrew Fournier's goal at 17:51 of the second period snapped a 2-2 tie and the Plymouth Whalers went on to defeat the Windsor Spitfires , 5-2, Thursday night at Windsor Arena.

The victory moves Plymouth (9-5-1-0) to within one point of first-place Saginaw (10-3-0-0) in the OHL West Division. Windsor falls to (5-11-0-0), last in the OHL West Division and last in the Western Conference.

Five different players scored for Plymouth. John Armstrong, Dan Collins (team-leading 14th), Gino Pisellini and Tom Sestito all added goals for the Whalers.

Ryan Garlock and Cal O'Reilly replied for Windsor.

"They were all over us," O'Reilly said in the Windsor Star. "We couldn't get out of our end."

Plymouth goaltender Ryan Nie stopped 28 of 30 Windsor shots for his fifth victory of the season. Nie was particularly sharp in the first 4:37 of the game when Windsor had two power plays and outshot Plymouth at that point in the game, 8-0.

Anthony Guadagnolo made 43 saves for the Spitfires.

The Whalers are back in action tonight in Guelph and will return home Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. at the Compuware Sports Arena to host Toronto.
