Sarnia Sting Calmed the Storm
MARCH 9, 2015



SARNIA – The Sting we’re victorious on Sunday afternoon with a 5 - 2 win in front of 3,026 happy fans at the RBC Centre.

Sarnia native, Justin Fazio was stellar in goal for the Sting this afternoon, making 37 saves and taking first star honours in the win. After 60:00, Guelph edged out the Sting in the shots on goal category by a slim margin of 39-35.

“I thought [Fazio] was the big story for us tonight, I thought he was real sharp and came up with a big start,” comments Head Coach Trevor Letowski.

 

 

 

Letowski goes on to add, “That’s the brand of hockey the Sarnia Sting want play. We lost a little flow in the second but that Kyrou goal, early in the 3rd was a big one for us.”
 

 


The Sting jumped out to a 2-0 lead after 20:00 with goals coming from, Patrick White at 8:48, and from Jeff King less than 4 minutes later. Kevin Spinozzi picked up his first of 2 assists in the game on the White marker, while Daniel Nikandrov and Jordan Kyrou were awarded the assists on King’s 2nd of the season.

 

 



The Sting outshot the Storm 18-8 in the opening frame, but Guelph returned the favour, firing a total of 20 shots in Fazio’s direction during the 2nd.

Pius Suter scored the lone goal for the Storm in the second period. Storm Captain, Jason Dickinson was credited with the assist on Suter’s 37th of the campaign.

The second period also saw Sting rookie, Jakob Chychrun partake in his first career OHL fight. After Brock Phillips clipped teammate Anthony Salinitri with a hit to the head, Chychrun was quick to drop the gloves and defend his teammate.

 


After a less than perfect second period, the Sting came out flying in the final stanza, with Jordan Kyrou extending the Sting lead to 3-1 just 0:08 into the period. Patrick White and Pavel Zacha earned the assists on Kyrou’s 12th of the season.

Just 2:06 later, Davis Brown banged home his 17th of the year on a pretty feed from Nikita Korostelev. Spinozzi was credited with the second assist on the goal.

It wasn’t over yet for the Sting, as draft-eligible winger, Nikita Korostelev turned, fired and buried his team-high 22nd goal of the season. Former Storm, Stephen Pierog and Davis Brown drew the assists.

 


Before the game was over, Suter added his 2nd of the night on a funny bounce that beat Fazio over the glove. The comeback proved all-but-not as the Sting held on for the 5-2 victory in front of the Sting faithful.
