Rookie Brodie Barrick stops 47 shots to lead Sting to a 5-4 win over Spirit

SAGINAW, Mich. - Rookie goaltender Brodie Barrick stopped 47 shots to help the Sarnia Sting edge the Saginaw Spirit 5-4 in OHL play Sunday. Many of Barrick's saves were of the highlight variety, as Sarnia (10-7-1) won its league leading eighth road game against only one loss.

The Sting got goals from five different players as Alex Galchenyuk and Alex Basso led the way with a goal and two assists. Nikolay Goldobin scored on a penalty shot, while Reid Boucher and Connor Murphy rounded out the scoring.

Charles Sarault chipped in with three assists.

Garret Ross, Jimmy Lodge, Nick Moutrey and Eric Locke each had a goal and an assist for Saginaw (6-9-2). Vincent Trocheck had a pair of assists, which tied him with Jack Combs on the Spirit all time assist leader board with 134.

Goldobin's penalty shot goal opened the flood gates in the second period as the teams combined for five goals after a scoreless first period.

The teams traded goals until Boucher put the Sting up for good at 3-2, with less then four minutes to go in the second period.

Galchenyuk gave Sarnia it's biggest lead 4-2 at 4:39 of the third period only to see Locke's goal at 7:38 slice the deficit to one.

Murphy's goal went into an empty net, before Lodge ended the scoring for Saginaw at 19:14.

Jake Paterson made 25 saves in a losing effort for the Spirit.
