OHL Roundup: A look at Sunday's games

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

The 18-year-old has produced four goals and 12 points in his last eight outings and now has eight goals and 21 points in 15 games, good for a tie for fifth in OHL scoring.

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. Jake Smith stopped 11-of-14 shots in a losing cause.

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

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

Elsewhere in the OHL, it was: Mississauga 3, Sudbury 2 (SO); Sault Ste. Marie 6, Guelph 2; Owen Sound 5, Windsor 2; Peterborough 3, Oshawa 2 (SO); and Kitchener 2, Plymouth 1.

At Brampton, Ont., 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 from the slot.

Clarke cut the deficit to one on the power play with a little over six minutes remaining in the second period.

But 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.

Steelheads 3, Wolves 2 (SO)

At Mississauga, Ont., Dylan DeMelo scored in regulation and once more in the shootout as the Steelheads (9-4-1) edged Sudbury (7-8-1) for their third win in a row.

At Oshawa, Ont., Franic Menard scored once in regulation and added the shootout winner and Michael Giugovaz made 45 saves as Peterborough (4-7-3) slipped past the Generals (9-5-2).

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
