Sting Slam Spits in Home Finale
MARCH 21, 2015


By DAVE PAUL

 

 

The Sarnia Sting wrapped up the home portion of their 2014-15 season schedule, Friday night, with a convincing 7-2 win over the Windsor Spitfires.

The Sting (who clinched 7th place in the Western Conference with the win) had built a 7-0 lead after two periods -- thoroughly outplaying the Spitfires, who will miss the playoffs this season -- before seeing the Spitfires rebound a bit in the third to mess up Taylor Dupuis' shutout bid.
 


Sarnia scored early and often in the first period against the shell-shocked Spitfires, with Noah Bushnell and Patrick White both reaching double figures in goals for the season -- each scoring their 10th of the year. Jordan Kyrou scored his 13th and Hayden Hodgson added his 21st of the year.

That chased Windsor starter Brendan Johnston from the goal. He was replaced by Alex Fotinos, who played the final 45 minutes of the game.

 



The Sting continued to fly in the second period with Nikita Korostelev scoring his 24th of the year and Kevin Spinozzi scoring his seventh before Hodgson scored his second of the game and 22nd of the year, with just over a minute left in the frame.

Stephen Pierog and Daniel Nikandrov each had two assists for the Sting while Dupuis stopped 22 of 24 shots to pick up the win.

The game was played before a large, fan appreciation day crowd of 3,474.

The Sting will finish the regular season with a Saturday road game in Owen Sound and Sunday in Guelph. They will open the playoffs in Erie next week, against Connor McDavid's Otters. Games 3 and 4 of that series will be played at RBC Centre on Sunday, March 29 and Tuesday, March 31.
