Sting Dug Deep and Took Win Over Sudbury

Sunday November 16, 2014


The Sarnia Sting ended a four game losing streak with a 5 – 2 win over the Sudbury Wolves at home before 2,835 fans.


“We had to have that shift-to-shift intensity, and we executed it; it was nice to see,” Head Coach Trevor Letowski said “It was a game we desperately needed and the boys dug deep and got it.”

The games first goal was scored late into the first period at 18:38 after Nikita Korostelev pass the puck out front to Troy Lajeunesse who then passed it back to Kevin Spinozzi who fired a hard shot from the point that hit the mark.



In the second period Sudbury scored the only goal at 8:22 when Danny Desrochers caught a rebound.  Ivan Kashtanov and Kyle Capobianco earned assist on the play.

The first goal was scored at 12:36 by Daniel Nikandrov withAnthony DeAngelo and Vladislav Kodola picking up assists.  Patrick White made it 4 – 1 after he scored a shorthanded goal at 14:30 with Brandon Lindberg and Josh Chapman assisting and at 15:58 Kevin Spinozzi picked up his second goal, third point of the night on the power play after taking the pass from Nikita Korostelev and banged it in.  DeAngelo also earned an assist on the play.

Less than a minute later at 16:36 Sudbury’s Michael Pezzetta scored the final goal of the game with Brody Milne earning the assist.



“A big story of the game was that there was a lot of guys that stepped up. Lajeunesse, Kodola, White, Lindberg; those might have been our four best forwards tonight, and we need that.” Letowski said



The Sting was successful in killing off penalties as Sudbury went scoreless on six opportunities.  The Sting also had six opportunities and scored just once.
