Matt Martin scores twice to lead Sting 3-2 win over Knights @NHLdotcom

LONDON, Ont. - The London Knights started the 2007-08 regular season as the top ranked team in the Canadian Hockey League.

That belongs to the highly touted Sarnia Sting, who exacted a small measure of revenge for several years of heartbreaking losses to the Knights with a season-opening 3-2 victory before 9,090 last night at the John Labatt Centre.

Sarnia forward Matt Martin scored his second goal on a two-man advantage six minutes into the third period to give the Sting its first lead - one it held for the rest of the game.

Philadelphia Flyers prospect Pat Maroon, a St. Louis native who won the North American Hockey League scoring title last year, recorded his first OHL goal for the Knights and added an assist, but the one-goal loss made a bittersweet debut for the big forward.
