Sting with offensive break out against Wolves
Andrew Brethauer October 1st, 2011

Sarnia, ON - The Sarnia Sting finally showed their firepower Saturday night against the Sudbury Wolves, as the Sting put seven passed Brendan O'Neill in a 7-2 victory in front of 3595 at the RBC Centre.

Nail Yakupov had five points coming into Saturday nights game, with a goal and four assists, and nearly doubled his points total against the Wolves, scoring twice for Sarnia while also chipping in on two assists.

Sarnia got off to the quick start just 28 seconds into the first period with Ludvig Rensfeldt picking up his first of two goals on the evening. Yakupov would make it 2-0 seven minutes later, as the Sting made 2-0 after the first.

In the second, Craig Hottot scored on the powerplay for his third of the season to push the Sting lead to 3-0.

Sudbury would finally crack Brandon Maxwell who made his third start of the year, as Kristoff Kontos made it 3-1.

But things seemingly could not go wrong for the Sting Saturday, as Domenic Alberga would score shorthanded to recapture the three goal lead. Taylor Carnevale had the assists on the short handed goal, giving him three points on the night, all assists.

In the third, Yakupov would get his second of the night and third of the season, as Sarnia sprung for two more goals in the third period. Nick Latta got his first of the season while Rensfeldt ended the Sting scoring with his second of the game.

Charlie Sarault also had a multi-point game along with Yakupov and Carnevale, helping with three assists. Maxwell in net got his second win of the season, stopping 28 shots in the victory.

Sarnia went 2 for 6 on the powerplay, while fighting off each of the six powerplays the Wolves had.

Sarnia is now 2-1-0-1 to start the season. The Sting play two more home games next weekend, hosting the Oshawa Generals on Friday, and the Kitchener Rangers on Saturday.
