McNiven-regBy Tracey Richardson

The Owen Sound Attack's Michael McNiven stood tall in net Saturday, backstopping his tired team to a 3-0 win – McNiven's first Ontario Hockey League shutout.

It was the third game in three nights for the Attack, and the only win in the trio of games. The Attack lost in Windsor 4-2 Thursday, then lost a 3-2 shootout in Plymouth Friday.

It was all Windsor in the first period Saturday, before the Attack woke up in the second period. Chris Bigras walked in from the blueline during a four-on-four and scored a neat backhander. In the third, Attack goals were scored by Damir Sharipzyanov and Zach Nastasiuk less than a minute apart to seal the victory. Nastaskiuk also scored twice in Thursday's game against the Spitfires.
