Sarault, Boucher, Goldobin combine for 18 points as the Sting crush the Otters

Sarnia's top line of Charles Sarault, Reid Boucher and Nikolay Goldobin combined for six goals and 18 points as the Sting crushed the visiting Erie Otters 13-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Sarault led all players with seven assists and now has 20 goals and 97 points in 60 games, which places him second in the OHL points race behind Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds' forward Nick Cousins, who has 98 points in 58 contests.

Boucher scored four times and chipped in two assists and leads the league in scoring with 57 goals in 60 games. The 19-year-old has 17 goals in his last 12 games and is just one goal away from tying Steve Stamkos' team record of 58, which was set in 2007-08.

Goldobin had two goals and three assists and is now the OHL leader in rookie scoring with 58 points in 60 contests. He jumped over Erie's Connor McDavid, who failed to pick up a point and went minus-4 in defeat.

Nicholas Latta and Bryan Moore had two goals apiece for the Sting (33-24-3), who won for the first time in three outings, while Tyler Hore and Anthony DeAngelo had a goal and assist each.

Brett Hargrave added a single goal to round out Sarnia's offence.

Hayden Hodgson, Dane Fox and Travis Wood scored for the Otters (17-35-8), who dropped their fourth game in a row.

Sarnia's JP Anderson made 34 saves for the win as Erie's Oscar Dansk picked up the loss after allowing six goals on 11 shots in 15 minutes of action. Devin Williams replaced Dansk and stopped 19-of-26 shots in relief.

Sarnia went 2 for 4 on the power play while Erie failed to score on seven 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.
