Spirit routed by Kitchener, 6-1, on the road

The Saginaw Spirit fell to conference rivals Kitchener, 6-1, in Kitchener Saturday night.

The lone Spirit goal came from Patrick Asselin (left), his 20th of the season. Spirit goalie Francois Thuot made 59 saves, a new team record in regulation.

Thuot eclipsed his mark of 58 saves set on Nov. 9, 2005 in London against the Knights.

The Spirit remain in second place in the OHL West behind division-leading Plymouth, after the Whalers' 2-1 loss to Windsor. The Spirit are in fifth place in the Western Conference.

Saginaw plays today in Toronto against the St. Michael's Majors at 2:00 p.m. The Spirit return home to face Plymouth on Thursday at 7:11 p.m.
