The Sarnia Sting have won nine out of their last 10 games. Thursday night saw the Sting head into Windsor to play the Spitfires coming off of a two-game winning streak. Last time the two teams met the Sting blasted the Spits 6-1, Windsor would do a bit better this time out, but still could not get the better of goaltender Aidan Hughes who stopped thirty-one of the thirty-four pucks shot at him.
Things looked good for Windsor as they would score two goals in the first six minutes of play. Jordon Kyrou, would bring the Sting within one as he scored late in the first period. That is goal number 27 for the Sting Captain.
Chris Playfair woul give the Spits a two goal lead at just over three minutes into the second period. The Sting would answer back with a goal from Anthony Salinitri and then just over two minutes later from Franco Sproviero. Jordan Ernst would get the assist. That would tie the game up at three goals a piece.
With the third period not even two minutes old Ernst and Sproviero would again hook up, but this time with Franco feeding Jordan and Ernst gets his 16th of the season. That would be the game winner. Anthony Salinitri would finish things off for the Sting and get his second of the night. Anthony would do it in style by scoring the insurance goal short handed.
Over 4,300 shocked fans in the WFCU Centre saw the Sting swarm from behind to pick up the 5-3 win. Sarnia now travels to Flint on Friday night to face the Firebirds and then it is back to the Progressive Auto Sales Arena on Saturday to play the London Knights. It’s an afternoon game on Saturday with a 3:30 puck drop so get there early because this is one you do not want to miss.
