Timpano extended his personal win-streak to a perfect eight games to start the 2016-17 campaign making 51 saves last week for the first place Otters.  On Thursday night he made 24 saves as part of a 5-2 win over the Barrie Colts, then earned first star honours Saturday with a 27-save performance recording his second shutout of the season by a 6-0 score over the Saginaw Spirit.  The Otters have a share of the OHL’s Midwest Division lead with 21 points powered by a 10-3-1-0 record through 14 games.
