andrew brethauer November 26th, 2011

Sarnia, ON -  The Niagara IceDogs scored three goals in the first period, as they hand the Sarnia Sting their second loss of the week 4-2 at the RBC Centre Saturday night.

David Pacan started the scoring just 1:21 into the first period, scoring his 12th of the season and giving Niagara the 1-0 lead. Midway through the period Myles Doan would make it a 2-0 game with his third of the season, and three minutes later Andre Agozzino would make it 3-0.

The three goals came on 17 shots from the IceDogs, while the Sarnia Sting managed only six shots in the period.

In the second period, the Sting would get on the board late, as Brett Thompson scored his 12th of the season from Nick Latta and Ryan Kujawinski.

Thompson would score again in the early third for his 13th of the year, cutting the lead down to just one with 15 minutes left to play in the period.

Sarnia would pull the goalie looking for the equalizer, but the IceDogs would ice the game as Pacan picked up his second of the game with an empty net goal.

Brandon Maxwell got the start and made 29 saves in the loss.

Craig Hottot, Alex Basso and Julian Luciani each were minus-3 in the game. Nail Yakupov was not in the line up for Sarnia tonight after scoring 2 goals and 1 assist in Thursday nights game.

The Sting will travel to Kitchener to finish off the weekend with an afternoon game against the Rangers.
