Get ready for some more new faces on the roster.
While the Admirals were entertaining Peoria last night, Saginaw was clinching their playoff series against Guelph in the OHL. So Taylor Beck and Michael Latta’s junior seasons are complete, and they are on their way to Milwaukee. They may be able to make their debuts on Wednesday, but they need to officially be released by Guelph first. We think that’ll happen on Tuesday, but it’ll happen when it happens.
It was one of those series’ where it shows how momentum can just turn on a dime, and the series can take a whole new path. Leading the series 2 games to 1, Guelph had a 2-0 lead in game 4 before the game was five minutes old. And then a Saginaw shorthanded goal early in the second period sparked a four goal explosion in the middle frame that eventually led to a 4-3 Saginaw win. Saginaw took game 5, and then had a 6-2 lead in game 6 with 16 minutes to play. Guelph scored three times the rest of the way, thanks in part to some time on the power play, but Saginaw hung on to take the series.
Latta had five goals and five assists in the six games. Beck had three goals and five assists.
Meanwhile, Ryan Ellis’ Windsor Spitfire team will play game 7 of their series tomorrow night against Erie. Windsor was up 3 games to 1, but Erie took the next two games in overtime to force game 7.
Ellis has three goals and four assists in six games so far.
TUESDAY NIGHT UPDATE:
Windsor won game seven, scoring the game winning goal with 2:48 left in the game. Ellis had a power play goal and an assist in the game.
