SARNIA, Ont. - Alex Galchenyuk had two goals and an assist and JP Anderson made 36 saves Thursday as the Sarnia Sting topped the Windsor Spitfires 5-2 in the Ontario Hockey League.

Galchenyuk scored the winner on a penalty shot late in the second period for the Sting (6-6-1), who snapped a three-game slide.

Alex Basso returned to the lineup after serving a three-game suspension for Sarnia and scored his first of the season, while rookie Bryan Moore added the first goal of his OHL career.

Nick Latta rounded out the scoring for the Sting, while Reid Boucher chipped in with two assists.

Jordan Maletta and Josh Ho-Sang scored for the Spitfires (6-5-3), who let leads of 1-0 and 2-1 slip away.

Jaroslav Pavelka stopped 40 shots in taking the loss.

The Sting finished the night 1-4 on the power- play, while Windsor was 0-for-5.

Sarnia forward Nikolay Goldobin saw his seven-game point streak come to an end.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
