Boucher three goals, DeAngelo four assists as the Sting down the Frontenacs

KINGSTON, Ont. - Reid Boucher scored three times and Anthony DeAngelo had four assists as the Sarnia Sting downed the host Kingston Frontenacs 5-2 on Sunday afternoon in Ontario Hockey League play.

Boucher leads the league with 45 goals in 51 games and his three-goal performance was his third hat trick of the season and 10th multi-goal game.

DeAngelo, who extended his point streak to four games and has one goal and eight points in the process, has 41 points in 47 contests, which is good for fourth in scoring for OHL defencemen.

Nickolas Latta scored twice for the Sting (28-20-3), who halted a three-game slide, and Alex Basso had three assists.

Spencer Watson and Henri Ikonen scored for the Frontenacs (20-25-5), who dropped their 11th game in a row, and Warren Steele assisted on both of his club's goals.

Despite their winless streak, Kingston still holds the eighth and final playoff position in the Eastern Conference.

JP Anderson stopped 37-of-39 shots for the win as Colin Furlong made 26 saves in a losing cause.

Sarnia went 3 for 8 on the power play, and scored once shorthanded, while Kingston went 1 for 4 with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
