Blandisi scores twice, Binnington stops 30 shots as Attack beat Sting 4-3

SARNIA, Ont. - Joseph Blandisi scored twice and Jordan Binnington made 30 saves as the Owen Sound Attack edged the Sarnia Sting 4-3 on Friday night in Ontario Hockey League action.

Holden Cook and Cameron Brace also scored for the Attack (4-1-1), who lead the Midwest Division, while Gemel Smith chipped in two assists.

Brace, who leads his club in points with 10, including five goals, snapped a 3-3 just 11 seconds into the third period with what stood up to be the game winner.

Alex Galchenyuk had a goal and an assist for the Sting (1-3-1), who lost for the fourth time in their first five games, and Charlie Sarault and Nick Latta scored a goal apiece.

JP Anderson stopped 26 shots in a losing effort.

The Sting finished the game on a 6-on-4 power play but were unable to get the game-tying goal.

Both teams struggled on the power play as Owen Sound was 0-for-2, while the Sting scored once on seven opportunities with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
