Letowski Says Spitfires Ready To Keep The Season Alive
The Spitfires need a win to keep their season alive at the WFCU Centre Sunday afternoon.
Windsor fell behind 3-2 in the series after a 4-2 loss to the Sarnia Sting Friday night that made goalie Michael DiPietro a question mark for game six in the process — DiPietro left the game with a knee injury in the third period.
Head Coach Trevor Letowski says he'll be a game time decision.
"It's day to day, our guys assessed him today, they're going to assess him in the morning and we're hopeful," he says. "If you talk to Mikey, he's going to do everything he possibly can to be in the net, but we also have to monitor it and make sure he's got the ability to go in there and play at a high level."
Brock Baier stopped all 11 shot he faced in relief Friday and if he's between the pipes Sunday, Letowski says the team will rally around him on home ice.
"Our team is excited about the opportunity to come back home for game six in front of our own fans and have the opportunity to push this series the distance," says Letowski.
He says the Spitfires have proven everyone wrong the whole series.
"I don't think anybody gave us that opportunity before the series started and we have an excited group of players in that room that want to keep the season alive," he says.
Sarnia returns to the WFCU Centre Sunday for game six, the puck drops at 2:05pm. Tune into AM800 for all the action.
