The Windsor Spitfires have advanced to the second round of the OHL playoffs for the first time since 2011.

The Spits beat the Sting 3-1 in Sarnia Sunday night to win their best-of-7 opening round series in six games.

Goaltender Matt Onuska made 25 saves and Wyatt Johnston's goal late in the first period stood up as the game-winner.
