Spirit win wild one in Soo, 6-5

It was a wild game last night in Sault Ste. Marie, but the Saginaw Spirit came away with a 6-5 win over the host Greyhounds.

Chris Chappell (pictured above) scored a goal and added two assists while Patrick Asselin scored a pair for the Spirit, first place in the OHL West.

Saginaw had a 6-3 lead with just over four minutes left in the game until the 'Hounds scored two power-play goals to cut the lead to 6-5.

Tom Pyatt, Michal Birner and Zack Torquato also scored for Saginaw, who got a 23-save outing from goaltender Ryan Daniels. Pyatt's man-advantage marker at 12:35 of the third period stood as the game-winner.

The 18-9-0-0 Spirit travel to London tomorrow night and then host Barrie on Saturday.
