SPIRIT SCORE SEVEN UNANSWERED ENROUTE TO WIN IN ERIE

Erie, Pennsylvania – In a rare Tuesday night affair – taking place due to the rescheduling of November 18’s game for weather – the Saginaw Spirit would come to town for the second time this season. Following an explosive 7-3 victory on Saturday night against Mississauga, the Erie Otters would look to get back to consistent winning ways against a more-than-familiar foe.
Erie had its proverbial backs pressed against the wall to start the first period, as the Saginaw offense held a 4-1 shot advantage and all the time-of-possession early. Despite this, Erie would outshoot Saginaw 12-5 down the stretch, and score the first two goals of the game. The first such would come on Erie’s second man-advantage of the night, as Spencer Sova (13) would grab his seventh power play goal of the year. Just under a minute later, Erie would strike back again, as Elias Cohen (11) would have a Christian Kyrou shot redirect off his skate to put Erie up 2-0. With the goals, Sova and Cohen would have three goals in two games, and Erie would take a 2-0 lead into the period break. Erie would lead in shots 13-9.
The Saginaw offense would finally breakout in the second period, striking for four goals to take a lead into the third period. It would start 1:50 into the period from Hunter Haight (5) to put Saginaw on the board. A 2-1 game would stand for some time, but would finally be broken up by the first goal of the season for Artyom Kulakov (1) to put Erie back up by two. From there, it would be three-unanswered goals from Zayne Parekh (8), Hunter Haight (6), and Lincoln Moore (3) in less than three minutes to put Saginaw up 4-3 after 40. Erie would lead in shots 20-19.
After a four-goal middle frame, the Spirit would repeat their second period offensive success as they would strike for another four goals. In the span of 7:02, Saginaw would see goals from Roberto Mancini (7), Luke McNamara (4), Michael Misa (15), and Nic Sima (4) to dominate Erie enroute to an 8-3 victory. The win for Saginaw would split the season series, 1-1.
 
The home weekend continues for the Erie Otters as they look ahead to Friday night against Windsor for Children’s Grief Awareness Night (pres. by Highmark Caring Place), and Saturday night against the Kingston Frontenacs for Night of Champions with the first 1000 fans receiving a free Brad Boyes/Dylan Strome Bobblehead.
