The Battalion head into the holiday season as the hottest team in the Ontario Hockey League.

Brampton picked up its sixth straight victory after Sunday defeating the Sarnia Sting 6-1.

"It's great to go into the Christmas break on a bit of a hot streak," said Michael Santini.

Santini led Brampton (20-10-4) with three goals, while Jordan Auld, Zach Bell and Barclay Goodrow added singles. Jamie Lewis chipped in with two assists.

Charles Sarault scored the lone goal for Sarnia (19-11-5), which has now dropped two in a row.

Matej Machovsky made 19 saves for the win. Brandon Hope stopped 39 shots in defeat.

The Battalion failed to score on three power-play opportunities, while the Sting went 1-for-12.

Sarnia was without Nail Yakupov, who left the team on Saturday to join team Russia for the world junior championships.

Brampton heads into the break as top team in the OHL's Central Division.
