SAULT STE MARIE, Ont. - Matt Murray made 25 saves as the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds routed the Sarnia Sting 8-0 on Wednesday in Ontario Hockey League action

Andrew Fritsch had four goals and an assist for the Greyhounds (30-21-4). It marked his first hat trick since his rookie season. Nick Cousins re-took the OHL scoring lead over Sarnia's Charlie Sarault with four assists for Sault Ste. Marie.

Nick Halagian added a pair of goals for the Greyhounds. David Broll had a goal and an assist while Tyler Gaudet added a single.

J.P. Anderson got the start for Sarnia, stopping 20 shots before being pulled after the Greyhounds fourth goal. Knick Dawe came in and stopped 21 shots the rest of the way for the Sting (30-22-3).

The Greyhounds went 2 for 5 on the power play while the Sting were 0 for 4.

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.
