Spencer Martin stops 37 shots as Mississauga beats Sarnia 5-3

SARNIA, Ont. - Spencer Martin made 37 saves to help the Mississauga Steelheads beat the Sarnia Sting 5-3 in Ontario Hockey League action Thursday.

Captain Stuart Percy, Spenser Cobbold, Kris Kontos, Scott Teskey and Brett Foy each scored for the Steelheads (6-3-1), who have won four straight games.

Foy's insurance goal came just 25 seconds after the Sting pulled within 4-3 with 2:53 left in the third.

Charlie Sarault lead the Sting (5-4-1) with two goals, including a one short handed, early in the second, while Craig Hottot chipped in with a goal and an assist.

The loss snapped a four-game win streak for the Sting, who three times came within a goal of the Steelheads but never held the lead.

Neither teams' power plays worked as Mississauga ended the night 0 for 3, while the Sting missed on all four of their chances.

JP Anderson suffered the loss for the Sting allowing five goals on 28 shots.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
