Sting get return victory over Greyhounds
andrew brethauer October 27th, 2011

Sault Ste. Marie, ON Last Thursday the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds ended Sarnia's winning streak at seven with a 5-2 victory. On Wednesday, the Sting would head to Sault Ste. Marie for the return match, only this time coming away with the 5-1 victory.

The Greyhounds held the early lead with a powerplay goal by Colin Miller 1:39 into the first period, but Jack Nevins would reply just under a minute later to knot it up at 1-1, as the first period would end all square.

In the second, Nail Yakupov would get his tenth goal of the season on the powerplay to give the Sting their first lead of the game, and they wouldn't look back from that point on.

In the third, Ludvig Rensfeldt would get his fifth of the year, and Yakupov would add his second of the game for a 4-1 lead. Craig Hottot would get his sixth of the season, as the Sting start their road weekend with a 5-1 victory.

Brandon Maxwell got the start and made 29 saves for his ninth win of the season. Charlie Sarault also picked up three assists in the game.

Sarnia continues their road trip with a trip to Saginaw on Saturday to take on the Spirit, followed by an afternoon game in London against the Knights.
