The Boston Bandits, playing with a shortened bench, took a squeaker from the Pics on Saturday night.
The lone goal was scored in the 1st Period from Alex Hoitt of the Bandits at the 15:15 mark off a breakaway.
Both teams had numerous scoring chances. The Pics tried putting one on the board in the final minute of the game with Spirin pulled and the Pics on a power play, but they could not convert.
Tyler MacKoul of the Bandits stood on his head stopping all 39 shot that came at him.
Spirin stopped 38 of the 39 shot that came at him.
The Pics play the Bandits again tomorrow at 2pm at the Olympia Ice Center.
