Galchenyuk scores twice as the Sting double up the Storm 4-2

SARNIA, Ont. - Alexander Galchenyuk scored twice and added an assist as the Sarnia Sting doubled up the visiting Guelph Storm 4-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League play.

The Montreal Canadiens' prospect now has 24 goals and 56 points in 32 games, which moves him into second in OHL scoring. Niagara IceDogs' forward Ryan Strome currently leads the league with 62 points in 32 contests.

Charles Sarault scored once and set up three more for the Sting (19-11-3), who have won six of their past seven games, while Reid Boucher had a goal and an assist.

Robby Fabbri and Matt Finn scored for the Storm (20-10-3), who had their three-game winning streak halted.

JP Anderson stopped 31-of-33 shots for his 16th win of the season as Garret Sparks made 23 saves in a losing cause.

Special teams factored in for both clubs as Sarnia went 2 for 5 on the power play while Guelph scored once on five chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
