The Windsor Spitfires rebounded from a lopsided 8-1 in Hamilton Friday with a solid 5-2 Sunday afternoon at the WFCU Centre.
Liam VanLoon got the visitors on the board at 3:49 of the first period. Kyle McDonald tied it up for the Spits in the second period.
Christopher O'Flaherty scored his first of the pre-season redirecting a shot by Pasquale Zito, who was returning from Detroit Red Wings camp, at 12:32 of the middle frame.
Mark Duarte sent the game into the second intermission tied as he streaked through the slot and buried a Noah Nelson pass at 18:04.
The Bulldogs got into penalty trouble in the third as Matthew Maggio scored on a 5-on-3 to give Windsor a 3-2 advantage. James Jodoin picked up a loose puck at the Niagara blueline, steaked into the slot and made a nifty pass to Ethan Miedema who flashed his slick hands before making it a 4-2 game.
Ryan Abraham iced the game with an empty netter as Windsor moved their pre-season record to 2-2. They head to Oshawa Friday before returning home for their final exhibition game next Sunday against the Generals.
