andrew brethauer December 11th, 2011

Sarnia, ON - Nail Yakupov returned from a back injury and scored a goal and added two assists in a 4-2 victory over the Peterborough Petes.

It was the Sting's first victory of the weekend after a loss to Erie on Friday and Plymouth on Saturday.

After a scoreless first period, Yakupov would score his first goal in weeks on the power play, as Charlie Sarault set him up for a one timer that beat Andrew D'Agostini for the Sarnia 1-0 lead.

Sarnia would continue on the power play as Brett Thompson added his 18th goal of the year and second point of the night. Yakupov would get his second point, finding Taylor Carnevale in front for the third power play goal.

But Sarnia wasn't finished as Charlie Sarault would get the fourth straight Sting goal, as well as picking up his fourth point on the afternoon, as he had an assist on each of the previous Sting goals.

Peterborough would break Brandon Maxwell's shutout 40 seconds later, and Stephen Pierog would add a goal in the third period, but Maxwell would complete 36 saves in the victory.

This was the second time in the month of December the Sting have defeated the Petes,

Sarnia will finish off the rest of 2011 on the road, taking on Erie next Saturday and Brampton on Sunday.
