Spirit Beat Hounds for 6th in West

Saginaw, MI | by Manny Paiva  

Saginaw wins 4-3 in OT, Attack to face Greyhounds in 1st round of OHL playoffs.

The Saginaw Spirit have won the 6th seed in the OHL's Western Conference.

Justin Kea scored 3:36 into overtime as the Spirit edged the visiting Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 4-3 on Monday in the OHL's final game of the regular season.

Eric Locke had a pair of goals for the Spirit (33-30-5), who jumped over the Owen Sound Attack for the sixth seed in the West.

Patrick Watling scored twice for the Greyhounds (44-17-7) and Jorgen Karterud added a single goal.

But Sault Ste Marie did not dress a number of their star players for the game -- such as Matt Murray, Darnell Nurse, Jared McCann and Sergey Tolchinsky.

Saginaw's Jake Paterson made 31 saves for the win as Sault Ste. Marie's Brandon Halverson kicked out 48-of-52 shots in a losing cause.

Cody Payne also scored for Saginaw, a day after the team travelled to Toronto for the visitation of former teammate Terry Trafford.

Trafford's body was found last week, a week after he went missing after being disciplined by the team.

A funeral for Trafford will be held in Toronto on Tuesday.

The Greyhounds, who own the second seed in the Western Conference, will face the seventh-seeded Owen Sound Attack in Round 1 of the OHL playoffs.

The Spirit will play the third-seeded Erie Otters.

Both series start on Friday March 21st.
