AND TYLER SEGUIN (#9) SCORED WHALER
@ WINDSOR, ONT:
The Plymouth Whalers spoiled the season opener for the
defending OHL/CHL Champion Windsor Spitfires with a 6-5
Thursday night shootout win.
The Spitfires wheeled out the Wayne Gretzky Trophy
(OHL Western Conference Champions), J. Ross Robertson
Trophy (OHL C'ship) and the Memorial Cup (CHL Championship) in pre-game ceremonies, but the
Plymouth win foiled the triple title celebration for a crowd of 6,501 Windsor fans.
Trailing 4-1 early in the 2nd-Per when they pulled starting goalie Josh Unice and
5-2 entering the final regulation period the Spits scored three times to force overtime
and then the shootout session. Austin Watson's second goal of the game with just
1:24 left in the 3rd-Per tied the contest 5-all for the Spitfires. Windsor went first in
the shootout, but Plymouth scored on both their chances with penalty shot style goals
by Tyler Seguin and Miles McCauley for a 2-1 shootout edge when Windsor went just 1-for-3.
Seguin had two goals and an assist in regulation for the Whalers. Taylor Hall
had the 3-goal Hat Trick plus two assists to factor in on all of Windsor's regulation
The Spitfires out-shot the Whalers 44-23 as Plymouth netminder Scott Wedgewood
A.J. Jenks was on his way back from NHL Florida Panthers training camp and arrived
at the arena from the airport 10 minutes after the game had started, so he was among
the Whaler scratches. Windsor had six of its players still in various NHL camps.
Plymouth's home opener is Saturday night vs Oshawa.
