Windsor - January 20, 2013 - The Windsor Spitfires were able to rally from down two goals three times Sunday afternoon to defeat the Sarnia Sting 5-4 in front of a crowd of 6,383 at the WFCU Centre.

Despite trailing 2-0 less than five minutes into the game, Windsor controlled the play most of the afternoon, outshooting Sarnia 48-37. Alex Aleardi’s second as a Spitfire, and second in as many games, cut the lead to one before the end of the first period.

Charles Sarault scored shorthanded, Sarnia’s second goal in the game while down a man, to restore the two-goal lead early in the second period. Kerby Rychel’s team-leading twenty-fifth goal of the year continued the seesaw nature of the contest, setting the stage for a wild third period.

Sarnia’s Nick Latta scored one minute into the final frame, but Windsor stormed back with three unanswered goals in a span of 5:14 from Alexander Khokhlachev, Josh Ho-Sang and Remy Giftopoulos.

Jaroslav Pavelka made 43 stops for the win, his eighteenth of the season.

Windsor now sits two points back of the Saginaw Spirit, with a game in hand, for the final playoff spot in the Ontario Hockey League’s Western Conference.

They’ll look to pull even with the Plymouth Whalers in town Thursday night.
