WINDSOR, Ont. - Domenic Alberga scored the winner at 2:29 of overtime as the Sarnia Sting rallied from 3-0 down to defeat the Windsor Spitfires 4-3 in OHL play Monday.

The Sting (5-1-0-1) started their comeback late in the second period when Ryan Kujawinski and Nathan Chiarlitti scored to cut the Windsor lead to 3-2 after 40 minutes of play.

Kujawinski's goal snapped Spitfire netminder Jack Campbell's shutout streak against Sarnia at 95:57 minutes.

Nick Latta's second goal of the season midway through the third period tied the game at 3-3.

Nail Yakupov, projected to be the first pick overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, contributed three assists for the Sting.

Nick Czinder, Michael Clarke and Adrian Robertson gave Windsor a 3-0 lead.

Both teams were missing key offensive weapons due to knee injuries.

The Spitfires (5-3-1-0) were without Tom Kuhnhackl, a Pittsburgh Penguins prospect who was their leading goal-scorer last season.

The Sting have been without Alexander Galchenyuk, widely regarded to be a first-round NHL pick in 2012, all season.

Brandon Hope made 25 saves for Sarnia. Campbell stopped 27 shots for the Spitfires, who had their three-game winning streak snapped.
