Spits win Tuesday, Whalers lead 2-1

Bradley Snetsinger (above) jammed home a rebound at 13:37 of the first period to give the Windsor Sptifires a 2-0 lead and the Spits went on to defeat the Plymouth Whalers, 2-1, in Game 3 of the best-of-seven OHL conference quarterfinal series last night in Plymouth.

Plymouth still leads the best-of-seven series two games to one.

Ryan Garlock scored the first Windsor goal 42 seconds into the first period and assisted on Snetsinger’s game-winner.

The lone Plymouth goal was scored by defenseman Wes Cunningham at 2:44 of the third period on a wrap-around from behind the Windsor net to the right wing door-step by Windsor goaltender Anthony Guadagnolo.

The Whalers pressured in the third period and pulled Peters with 49 seconds left, but could not find the equalizer.

Windsor outshot Plymouth, 31-27.

Plymouth goalie Justin Peters finished with 29 saves while Guadagnolo stopped 26.

The series resumes Thursday night with Game 4 at Windsor Arena at 7:30 p.m. Game 5 will be played Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. at the Compuware Sports Arena.
