Whalers tie Spitfires for first place in OHL West with 3-2 win over Sting

SARNIA, Ont. - Matt Mahalak made 32 saves as the Plymouth Whalers edged the Sarnia Sting 3-2 Friday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Garrett Meurs broke a 2-2 tie for the Whalers (8-4-3) at 11:30 of the third period when he scored on a rebound from the slot.

Plymouth began the season losing six of its first eight games, but has since turned things around, winning five of the last six, to tie Windsor for top spot in the West Division.

Alex Aleardi and Ryan Hartman scored in the first period as the Whalers jumped out to a 2-0 lead.

The Sting (8-7-1) tied the game in the second period with goals from Justice Dundas and Nick Latta.

The loss snapped Sarnia's three-game win streak.

JP Anderson took the loss despite making 22 saves.

Both teams were 0-2 with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
