First star Nick Porco tallied twice and added two assists and fellow Sault Ste. Marie product Camaryn Baber found range once as the Saginaw Spirit sped past the Soo Greyhounds 10-1 tonight in Game 2 of their Ontario Hockey League playoff series.
The overwhelming home-ice win gives Saginaw a two games to none lead in the best-of-seven, OHL Western Conference semi-final set.
Games 3 and 4 are slated for GFL Memorial Gardens in Sault Ste. Marie on Tuesday and Thursday of this week.
Trade deadline acquisitions Ryan McLeod and Owen Tippett — both acquired in separate deals with the Mississauga Steelheads — also had big outings for Saginaw in tonight’s victory. McLeod scored twice and added two assists and Tippett had a goal and two helpers.
Yet another forward, Blade Jenkins, also played a prominent role in the Saginaw win with a pair of goals while goalie Ivan Prosvetov made 42 saves for the victorious Spirit.
