Spirit and Whalers both win Thursday

Jan Mursak and Tom Pyatt each recorded hat tricks to lead the Saginaw Spirit to a 7-2 win over the Brampton Battalion last night in Saginaw.

Chris Chappell also scored for the Spirit and Ryan Daniels made 26 saves for the win. Former Saginaw goalie Aaron Rock stopped 39 for Brampton.

Saginaw plays in Sarnia tonight.

Across the Detroit River in Windsor, Jeremy Smith registered his first career shutout as the Plymouth Whalers beat the Spitfires, 4-0. Smith made 32 saves in the effort.

Evan Brophey scored twice and Dan Collins and captain Steve Ward tallied as well. James Neal chipped in with two assists.

Plymouth hosts Brampton tonight and TNA wrestler Christian Cage will be making an appearance to promote Sunday's Bound For Glory pay-per-view that takes place at the Compuware Sports Arena.
