Galchenyuk with three points as the Sting beat the Battalion 4-1

BRAMPTON, Ont. - Alexander Galchenyuk scored once and setup two more as the Sarnia Sting downed the host Brampton Battalion 4-1 on Sunday afternoon in Ontario Hockey League play.

Reid Boucher had a goal and an assist for the Sting (8-6-1), who have won three straight games, while Brett Hargrave and Nickolas Latta scored a goal apiece.

Blake Clarke scored the lone goal for the Battalion (5-6-5), who have lost three in a row.

Brodie Barrick made 30 saves for the win as Jake Smith stopped 11-of-14 shots in a losing cause.

Latta opened the scoring 10:21 into the game converting on a Nikolay Goldobin pass and firing a shot by Smith.

Boucher made it 2-0 on the power play just over a minute later, firing a quick shot past Smith from the slot.

Clarke curbed the deficit to one on the man advantage with a little over six minutes remaining in the second period.

Galchenyuk made it 3-1 with eight minutes to play in the third, beating Smith blocker side, before Hargrave rounded out the scoring with an empty-net goal in the final minute.

Sarnia went 1-for-3 on the power play while Brampton capitalized on 1-of-4 opportunities with the man advantage.

The win was Sarnia’s first in Brampton since the 2003-04 season.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
