Saginaw at Sault Ste Marie
This is a rematch of the game played at Saginaw last Saturday night. In that game Saginaw would score twice in the second period to eke out a 2-1 to start the third frame. The Greyhounds would score with 43 seconds left in the game to tie things up. Nick Cousins would score at 3:00 into overtime to steal the win for the visitors. Cousins would tally 2 assists and earn first star honours. Locke and Schumacher were the goal scorers for the Spirit. The game would see many players penalized for head checks / checking from behind and roughing. Should be another highly physical game!
Watch for Saginaw’s newly acquired forward from the Barrie Colts overage Gregg Sutch – the Spirit now have 4 overage players on their roster. The Greyhounds also have a new addition – they recently traded for overager Chris Buonomo to patrol the blueline for them (hometown Sault Ste Marie).
The Greyhounds have a couple of players near the top of OHL scoring. Ryan Sproul leads all Defencemen with 8 points in 4 games played this regular season. Sergie Tolchinsky is third in rookie scoring with 4 points.
