Saginaw Spirit 5 @ Owen Sound Attack 2

D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 3 GP, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM

This one is hard to figure out. Saginaw got beat 8-0 a night earlier, yet took out the defending league champs in their own barn by three goals. To compound the confusion, the Attack came into the third period down just 2-1, and outshot the Spirit 22-5 in the final 20 minutes, yet were outscored 3-1 in the frame despite having a goaltender who was a third round NHL pick in the summer (Jordan Binnington – Blues). To top it off, Schemitsch, one of the top defensemen for the Attack, was a team-worst minus-3. That’s how it goes sometimes, especially in junior hockey.
