Egor Afanasyev extended Windsor’s lead with a goal early in the second, but Sault Ste. Marie scored twice to reduce the deficit. The Spitfires ended the second period with an 8-3 lead after Cuylle scored twice to complete a hat-trick and D’Amico scored his fourth of the night.

Wyatt Johnston scored for Windsor halfway through the third and the Greyhounds got their final goal of the game with just two minutes left.  D’Amico capped off Windsor’s win by scoring his fifth goal of the game in the final minutes.

Spitfires goaltender Xavier Medina made 30 saves out of 34 shots on net.
