Whalers blank Saginaw on Wednesday night

John Vigilante (above) scored twice, including once shorthanded, and Evan Brophey had a goal and an assist as the Plymouth Whalers made it a six-point lead in the OHL West with a 4-0 win over the second-place Saginaw Spirit last night in Plymouth.

Justin Peters made 27 saves for the shutout while at the other end, Francois Thuot stopped 31 in defeat.

Chris Terry scored Plymouth's fourth goal and new Whalers' forward Joe McCann drew the lone assist.

Plymouth (22-14-1-3) next plays on the road Friday night against the Kitchener Rangers and then host the Rangers Saturday night. The Spirit (21-18-0-0) host the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds Sunday afternoon.
