Now thatâ€™s how you reclaim the No.1 goaltender spot. After sitting for four games, Zador (pictured) finally got the nod for Oshawa and was stellar in a 37-save shutout - especially early. He dropped his GAA a full goal and a half with the effort. It was his first career shutout in 33 OHL games.

Ashton has scored in four straight games.

Season Totals: 6 GP, 2-2-4, +4, 2 PIM
Windsor scored four times in the third to turn a 3-2 deficit into a comfortable win.
Sointu continued his tour of playing fellow Lightning prospects this weekend â€“ sort of â€“ as Zador watched from the bench for the third straight game. Ottawa scored with just over a minute left in the game to force overtime. Sointu is tied for the team lead in plus/minus.
Ashton has five goals in his last three games ... The Soo keeps rolling ... Hutchings vs. Sointu.
