Sting Celebrate First Win at Home
friday october 10, 2014

By Dave Paul


Everything came together for the Sarnia Sting, Friday night.

The home team dominated the visiting Saginaw Spirit in virtually every aspect of the game, skating to a 3-1 victory -- Sarnia's second win of the young 2014-15 season.


The Sting opened the scoring late in the first period, on a power play, with Davis Brown scoring on a rebound at 18:46. Before the period ended -- just 20 seconds later -- rookie Troy Lajeunesse scored his first OHL goal to give Sarnia a well-deserved 2-0 lead after one period.


Sarnia was the better team again in the second and midway through the period, Pavel Zacha beat Saginaw goalie Jake Paterson to give Sarnia a three-goal lead.

Justin Fazio's shutout bid was spoiled at 10:22 of the third when Saginaw's Luke Cairns slipped a low shot past his pad, on the power play.
But the Sting didn't falter, finishing strong for the two-goal win.

Sarnia outshot Saginaw in all three periods, and 40-26 overall.


Sarnia returns to action Saturday night when they host the Windsor Spitfires at 7:05 p.m. at RBC Centre.  Tickets for the game are on sale at the RBC Box Office, by calling 519-541-1717 or going online at www.sarniasting.com

  • The Sting played without defenceman Anthony DeAngelo, who was sitting out the second game of a two-game suspension.

  • Other players not playing due to injuries include goalie Taylor Dupuis, Matt Ciccarelli and Connor Schlichting

  • Sting called up Nathan Mater and Jake O'Donnell from the Sarnia Legionnaires Jr. B team.

  • Nikolay Goldobin will not be returning to the OHL this season. The San Jose first round draft pick, and former Sting star, has signed a professional contract to play in the Finnish Elite League this year.
