SAGINAW, Mich. -- Justin Kea scored 3:36 into overtime as the Saginaw Spirit edged the visiting Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 4-3 on Monday in the Ontario Hockey League's final game of the regular season.

Patrick Watling scored twice for the Greyhounds (44-17-7) and Jorgen Karterud added a single goal.

Saginaw's Jake Paterson made 31 saves for the win as Sault Ste. Marie's Brandon Halverson kicked out 48-of-52 shots in a losing cause.
