Sarnia - October 26, 2012 - Alex Galchenyuk netted the game-winning goal on a penalty shot in the second period, as the Sarnia Sting scored the game's final four goals in a 5-2 win over the Spitfires Thursday night at the RBC Centre.

Just 91 seconds after the Sting tied the game on a Nickolas Latta power play goal, a strange bouncing puck found Galchenyuk alone near centre ice. Spits defenceman Pat Sieloff was called for hauling the speedy Russian forward down.

Galchenyuk made no mistake on the free chance, beating Jaroslav Pavelka stick-side to give the Sting a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

Jordan Maletta (4) and Josh Ho-Sang (3) scored for the Spitfires (6-4-0-3), giving the Spitfires a 2-1 lead after 20 minutes.

Bryan Moore and Alex Basso each had their first goals of the season for Sarnia (6-6-0-1), which moved within two points of Windsor for first place in a tightly-bunched West Division.

Galchenyuk scored into an empty net to round out the scoring.

JP Anderson made 36 saves for the win.

The Spits are right back at it Friday night, as they visit the Storm in Guelph.
