Brody Milne is finding a groove in Windsor, and he’s fitting right in. He had himself a three-point night, and Alex Fotinos stopped 39 shots. With those remarkable performances, the Spitfires defeated the Peterborough Petes 4-2 Thursday night.
Milne opened up the scoring for the Windsor Spitfires. Remy Giftopouls brought the puck close and Milne finished off the play to give the Spits the early lead. Peterborough didn’t wait long before striking with the tying goal. A trio of Petes skated in to the Windsor end before getting a couple of chances. A bouncing puck went airborne and ricocheted off Anthony Stefano. He tapped it in from the blue paint to even the game.
The Spitfires shifted into another gear going into the second period. The change in tempo put them up only 46 seconds into the period. Milne made a leaping effort to lift the puck past Andrew D’Agostini and lift his team to a 2-1 lead. Less than a minute later, the Spitfires set up another goal. Constant pressure and puck position allowed Cristiano DiGiacinto to pass to Steven Janes alone in front. He made a little move before sliding the puck in the net. Unfortunately, Windsor took its foot of the gas after going up by a pair of goals. Peterborough then took advantage of its opportunities. Following a stopped 2-on-1, Eric Cornel of the Petes rushed into Windsor’s zone and fired the puck. A save by Fotinos rebounded to Jonatan Tanus and he got his team to within one. They nearly tied the game again on a penalty shot, but Fotinos stood tall to keep the Spits on top.
The third period remained basic hockey. The teams got but a few minor chances. It was uneventful until the end, when the Petes pulled their goalie and got the extra player onto the ice. The Spits foiled their plan as Janes got his second of the night, capping off the scoring into the empty net. The Spitfires hung on to beat the visiting Petes 4-2.
Windsor doesn’t return to home ice until Saturday, December 28th to face the Saginaw Spirit.
