Neal's hatter leads Plymouth over Saginaw

James Neal scored three goals (even strength, shorthanded, power-play) and Evan Brophey had four assists as the Plymouth Whalers took a 5-1 win over the Saginaw Spirit on Wednesday in Saginaw.

A.J. Jenks scored his first OHL goal and Jared Boll also tallied for the Whalers along with an assist on Jenks' opening goal.

Jan Mursak, a 2006 Detroit Red Wings' draft pick, scored the lone goal for the Spirit.

Michal Neuvirth earned his first OHL win with 31 saves, while Ryan Daniels (23 saves) suffered the defeat.

Plymouth (2-1-0) plays in Guelph tomorrow night and Saginaw (0-3-0) travels to Sarnia.
