Sarnia Sting Drops 3 - 1 Home Opener

September 22, 2012

Sarnia, On - The Sarnia Sting opened their season on Friday night before 3,278 fans and took a 3 - 1 loss against the Belleville Bulls.


Sarnia Olympic Gymnast Dominique Pegg was on hand to drop the ceremonial puck along with former Sting Matt Martin who presented Pegg with a Sting Jersey.  Martin is now a member of the New York Islanders.

"We didn't generate much offence," said Sting head coach Jacques Beaulieu. "We had about 10 scoring chances the whole game. Special team play was the difference in the game." 

Belleville went two for four on power play, Sarnia went zero for three.

Beleville scored one goal in the first with Joseph Cramarossa scoring and in the second Austen Brassard scored.  Sarnia scored early in the third when Defenceman Jack Kuzmyk took a pass in the open slot and slammed it in.  Alex Galchenyuk and Charilie Sarault got the assist on the goal. 

In the last period Sarnia went for the tie going with the extra man but Michael Curtis found the empty net to seal the win for Belleville.








I guess I'm kind of lucky, I Iove to score goals, said Defenceman Jack Kuzmyk when asked about the goal,  "I'm not the goal scoring type so when it goes right to me that's awesome" Kuzmyk didn't score a single goal last season.


Kuzmyk felt the game was close despite the two goals.


"They didn't really beat us even strength, it came down to special teams and we got a lot of penalties and they capitalized on.  We got to tighten up on our penalty kill and be more disciplined."


Malcolm Subban took the win in net for the Bulls turning away 27 shots.  JP Anderson took the loss in net for the Sting making 24 saves.


The Sting are back in action on Sunday when they host the Kitchener Rangers.  Game time 2:05 pm.

 "It's tough to have three balanced lines now, with Bryan Moore and Craig Hottot out" said Beaulieu 


 Moore suffered a concussion at practice this past week and Hottot is out on a three game suspension he picked up in the final exhibition game against Saginaw.

 "We got to find a way to score goals. We need to compete and generate more offence. Kitchener has a really good team coming in here to so we will have our hands full." said Beaulieu
