Sault Ste Marie, Ont. – The Saginaw Spirit (14-19-1-0) will travel to Ontario to play a game for the first time since December 10th when they face the West Division-leading Soo Greyhounds (21-12-2-1) Wednesday night at the GFL Memorial Gardens. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:07 p.m.
The Spirit and Greyhounds have split their season-series so far this year at two games apiece, with both teams winning their games on their respective home ice. Their last meeting came on December 30th, a 2-1 victory for the Spirit at The Dow. Andrew Oke earned first star honors with 25 saves, while Sault native Calem Mangone scored the go-ahead goal for the Spirit with just over six minutes reaming in the third period.
