Sarnia, ON -  The Sarnia Sting have won their last three games, with their latest being a 6-4 victory over the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds Thursday night at the RBC Centre.

Dominic Alberga has continued his excellent play of the three game stretch, scoring two goals and adding two assists for a four point night, giving him seven points in his last three games.  Alberga would open the scoring 1:21 into the first period, but the lead would not last long as Carson Dubchak would tie it.

Five minutes later the Greyhounds would get their only lead in the game as Nick Cousins scored his 23rd of the season to put Sault Ste. Marie up 2-1.

The lead didn't last long into the second, as Ludvig Rensfeldt scored 51 seconds into the period to tie it at 2-2. Sarnia would retake the lead late in the period, as Brett Thompson netted his 24th of the season to put Sarnia back in front 3-2 heading into the third.

Sault Ste. Marie would retie the game after Brett Findlay scored 1:22 into the period, but Alberga would follow up with his second of the game to put Sarnia back in front. Under a minute later, Dylan Staples would tie the game again, only for a minute later, Nick Latta scored his 4th of the year to give Sarnia the lead back.

Craig Hottot would add his 15th midway through the period and give Sarnia the victory.
