ERIE, PA – The Otters took to home ice on Saturday night against the Windsor Spitfires, who entered the game ahead of Erie by three points for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

In the second, Max Golod found the back of the net for the 14th time this season and cut the Windsor lead to one. The teams traded opportunities until the final minutes, when Connor Corcoran found the back of the net to restore the two goal lead for Windsor.


In the third, Erie marched back and tied it up with goals from Brendan Hoffmann and Emmett Sproule, the ninth of the season for both players. The teams traded opportunities until the final moments, and the Otters headed to overtime for the second night in a row to decide a winner.  


In overtime, each side had opportunities to score, but neither could convert, and a shootout was required to break the deadlock.  In the shootout, Windsor would score twice with goals from Chase Campbell and Luke Boca, but it would be Erie who would win in the ninth round, with scoring from Chad Yetman, Brendan Sellan, and Emmett Sproule.  


Erie will travel to Kitchener to take on the Rangers Tuesday evening at 7:00PM.
