Sting get shut out against Spitfires
andrew brethauer September 25th, 2011

Windsor, ON  Kerby Rychel scored a powerplay goal at the 14:55 mark of the first period in what would be the eventual game winner, as the Windsor Spitfires shutout the Sarnia Sting 2-0 in the Sting's first road game of the season.

Alexander Khokhlachev had the Spitfires second goal, also on the powerplay in the second period. It was a two point game for both Rychel and Kohkhlachev, while Jack Campbell who returned from the Dallas Stars training camp picked up the 28 save shutout.

Sting Head Coach Jacques Beaulieu said multiple times before the regular season that the preseason didn't mean much as Sarnia had a 4-4 tie against the Spitfires and a 6-1 victory last weekend, both of which Campbell was not in goal.

Nail Yakupov, Charlie Sarault and Brett Ritchie who each had three points in Friday's home opener were all held off the score sheet.

Sarnia outshot Windsor 28-27, but only outshot the Spitfires in the third period 11-7. A penalty to Dominic Alberga in the late third period stopped any Sting momentum as they played out the final two minutes of the game a man down.

Sunday's game also marked the return of Reid Boucher from the New Jersey Devil's camp, while Alex Galchenyuk was still out of the line up with a knee injury.

Brandon Maxwell got the start for the Sting, his second of the season and made 25 saves in loss.

Sarnia returns home on Friday, September 30th to take on Brampton.
