Khokhlachev with three points as Spitfires come from behind to beat the Sting

WINDSOR, Ont. - The Windsor Spitfires scored three straight goals in the third period to come from behind and beat the visiting Sarnia Sting 5-4 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Alexander Khokhlachev, Josh Ho-Sang and Remy Giftopoulos all scored in a span of 5:14 to erase a 4-2 deficit for the Spitfires (19-19-7), who have won five of their last six contests.

Khokhlachev also had two assists for a three-point outing while Kerby Rychel and Alex Aleardi each had a goal and an assist to round out Windsor's offence.

Since being acquired from the Plymouth Whalers on Jan. 7th, Aleardi has produced two goals and eight points in six games with his new club.

Charles Sarault and Reid Boucher had a goal and an assist each for the Sting (26-16-3), who lost for the first time in three outings, and Davis Brown and Nickolas Latta scored a goal apiece.

Boucher has scored seven goals in his last three games and leads the OHL with 38 goals in 45 contests.

Jaroslav Pavelka made 33 saves for the win as JP Anderson stopped 42-of-47 shots in a losing cause.

Windsor went 0 for 3 on the power play while Sarnia failed to score on either of its opportunities with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
