Verbeek scores SO winner as the Spitfired edge the Sting

SARNIA, Ont. - Ryan Verbeek scored in the seventh round of the shootout as the Windsor Spitfires edged the host Sarnia Sting 3-2 in Ontario Hockey League play on Friday night.

Josh Ho-Sang and Ben Johnson scored for the Spitfires (13-12-6), who have won three of their last four outings.

Nikolay Goldobin and Davis Brown scored for the Sting (18-11-3), who had their five-game winning streak halted, and Anthony DeAngelo set up both.

The loss stopped JP Anderson from earning an OHL record 115 career wins. The 20-year-old is currently tied with former Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds' goaltender Kyle Gajewski with 114 victories.

Anderson took the loss despite stopping 38 shots, while Windsor goaltender Jordan DeKort picked up his first victory of the season making 36 saves.

Windsor went 1 for 2 on the power play while Sarnia failed to score on either of its chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
