Kahun scores SO winner as the Wolves beat the Sting 3-2

SUDBURY, Ont. - Dominik Kahun scored the only goal of the shootout as the Sudbury Wolves snapped their five-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the visiting Sarnia Sting on Friday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Mathew Campagna and Nathan Pancel scored in regulation for the Wolves (8-12-2).

Nickolas Latta and Nikolay Goldobin supplied the offense for the Sting (12-8-2), who have dropped back-to-back contests.

Joel Vienneau made 24 saves for the win as JP Anderson turned aside 36 shots in defeat.

Latta scored on Sarnia's first shot as he was left unmarked in the slot and beat Vienneau glove side 2:30 into the first period.

Campagna tied it up at 18:48 after he beat Anderson blocker side with a wrist shot from the hash marks.

Goldobin gave Sarnia the lead playing four-on-four at 15:45 of the second period after he deflected a shot through Vienneau's five-hole.

Pancel banged home a rebound in front of the net on the power play to tie the game 2-2 at 12:23 in the third period.

Kahun scored the shootout winner with a backhand to forehand deke that fooled Anderson.

Sudbury went 1-for-6 on the powerplay, while Sarnia wound up 0-for-5.
