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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
