Sting Overwhelmed by Soo
FEBRUARY 17, 2015


By DAVE PAUL

 


Monday's game was one to forget for the Sarnia Sting.

Playing before a large Family Day afternoon crowd of 3,789, the Sting surrendered three quick first period goals to the powerful Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, effectively ending the game by the 5:44 mark of the opening frame.

The Greyhounds scored once more in the first, then scored one goal each in the second and third periods to cap a 6-0 win.

Michael Bunting scored the final two goals for the Soo while Justin Bailey, Jared McCann, Keigan Goetz and, in his return to the RBC Centre, Anthony DeAngelo, scored the first period goals.

DeAngelo was honoured by the Sting prior to the game, as the team's all-time leading scoring defenceman. (The team also recognized its 100-point season scorers in the pre-game ceremony).
 


Sting starting goalie Taylor Dupuis looked shaky on a couple of the Soo goals and was replaced after the first period by Justin Fazio.

The Sting actually had a number of good chances to score in the second period -- a period they really dominated, despite being outscored 1-0 -- but Greyhounds goalie Brandon Halverson was very good and, at times, very lucky in managing to keep the Sting off the board.

With the win, the Greyhounds clinched the OHL West Division title.

The Sting, meanwhile, continue to flounder and, while they still have a 10-point bulge on ninth-place Windsor Spitfires, certainly can't relax too much longer or a playoff spot might be in jeopardy.

 



Sarnia, once again, played with 16 skaters due primarily to injuries.

Next action for the Sting is Friday night when they host Owen Sound.
