Sting drop close decision in London
andrew brethauer March 16th, 2012

London, ON - The Sarnia Sting had a chance to lock up home ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs Friday night, but fell just short with a 3-2 loss to the London Knights.

Adrian Robertson opened the scoring in the first period with his 10th of the season, but Chris Tierney would also score his 10th of the season, ending a long drought of scoreless periods for London, as the game was tied 1-1 after twenty minutes.

Craig Hottot would put Sarnia back in front in the second period until Maxi Domi would score on the power play to tie the game up again.

The power play would hurt the Sting again in the third period as Jared Knight scored midway through the third period, in what would eventually be the game winning goal in the 3-2 victory for London.

JP Anderson made 29 saves in the loss.

Sarnia still sits in 4th place in the Western Conference, one point in front of the Saginaw Spirit. The Sting will have one more chance to get home ice advantage, taking on the Plymouth Whalers Saturday night in the final regular reason game.
