Spitfires Mauled by Wolves
Windsor couldn't make it two in a row in Sudbury, falling 4-1 on the road to the Wolves in OHL action Friday night.
Sudbury would open the scoring to kick of the second period on an unassisted goal from Darian Pilon to make it 1-0.
Windsor goalie Kari Piiroinen would put some work in Friday night, stopping 31 shots in the first two periods alone.
The offence woke up for the Spitfires mid-way through the third on powerplay goal from Tyler Angle, but the Wolves gathered more steam just minutes later on Quinton Bayfield's 18th goal of the season to make it 2-1.
Sudbury solved Piiroinen once more before Nolan Hutcheson put the game away with an empty-net goal for a 4-1 final.
The Wolves outshot Windsor 46 to 23, Piiroinen made 42 saves in a losing effort.
Windsor is still five points up on the Erie in the Western Conference for the eighth and final playoff spot after the Otters lost 4-1 to the Greyhounds in Sault Ste. Marie
