SARNIA, Ont. - Charles Sarault scored twice and added three assists as the Sarnia Sting downed the visiting Windsor Spitfires 8-5 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League play.

The 20-year-old extended his point streak to seven games and he's scored four goals and 13 assists in the process. Sarault now has 14 goals and 61 points in 38 games, which moves him into a tie with Alex Galchenyuk for the team lead in points.

Boucher now has seven goals and 15 points in his last seven games.

Taki Pantziris and Bryan Moore also scored for Sarnia and Pantziri's goal was the first of his OHL career.

Ben Johnson and Nick Ebert each scored twice for the Spitfires (14-19-6), who are winless in their last seven outings, while Ryan Verbeek and Brady Vail chipped in two assists apiece.

Patrick Sanvido scored a single goal to round out Windsor's offence.

Knick Dawe, who replaced starter JP Anderson to start the second period, turned aside 28 shots for his first OHL victory. Jordan DeKort allowed four goals on 15 shots through 40 minutes of action and was replaced by Jaroslav Pavelka, who picked up the loss after allowing three goals on 21 shots.

Sarnia went 1 for 2 on the power play while Windsor went 1 for 3.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
