3/24 Recap: Kea cashes; Lieuwen stops all

Written By Kris Baker on Monday, March 25, 2013 | 3/25/2013

Justin Kea scored his first goal of the playoffs Sunday as Saginaw lost a 3-2 heartbreaker in double-overtime at London. Kea stepped out of the penalty box and joined a rush up ice, getting to behind the defense to tip in a Garrett Ross pass to give the Spirit a 1-0 lead. The series shifts to Saginaw on Tuesday with the Knights carrying a two-game lead.


Brady Austin logged a minus-one rating as Belleville was clipped by Mississauga 2-1. The Bulls take a 2-1 series lead into Tuesday’s game three.

In the AHL, Nathan Lieuwen made 39 saves to earn his first AHL win as Rochester pitched a 3-0 of San Antonio. Matt Ellis, Max Legault, and Nick Tarnasky scored for the Amerks, who enter the week in sixth place in the AHL’s Western Conference.
