Nathan Moon kept the Kingston Frontenacs in the game, then he won it for them.

Moon, with his third goal of the game, scored 45 seconds into overtime as Kingston came back to beat the Saginaw Spirit 5-4 on Friday night in the Ontario Hockey League.

"Moon's doing what we expect. He's working hard and he's a talented guy," Frontenacs coach Doug Gilmour said.

Brian Lashoff scored the tying goal for Kingston (8-8-0) with 50 seconds remaining with goaltender Tyler Beskorowany on the bench after Gilmour called a timeout.

"Taylor (Doherty) did the right thing and sent the puck in hard," Gilmour said of the goal, "we had everybody going in, got guys in front and the (Lashoff) shot had eyes for us."

The Frontenacs snapped a three-game losing streak by erasing two one-goal deficits in the third period.

"It was a good game and a good battle for us," Gilmour said. "The guys just kept working hard and fighting back."

In overtime, Moon took a pass from Corey Durocher and slipped the puck past former Kingston goaltender Anthony Peters.
