    10 games into the season and I’m already going to be dead wrong? Let’s circle back around to this conversation at the end of the regular season. I stand by what I said and would put money on Sarnia finishing top 5 in the conference. The entire league has judged this Sarnia team when literally their two best forwards, top 2 defensemen and all but 1 goalie were out of the line up. They are STILL missing their top 2 D and just went 4-0 since Rees and McGregor came back. Knocking off the two top teams in the league.

    All I do is complain about London? That’s funny because up until today I haven’t given two s***s about London or what they do. But when they call out my city and my team then expect a few shots to be fired back. You and I both know that this whole waiver situation could easily be reversed and London would do the exact thing we did. I was completely fine with everything until I had to start defending my team after they were slandered so heavily.

    Filthy, Filthy goal from Rees.
    Tabak also has 2 points again.

    Another sick goal by Rees. Kid is an absolute stud. Where are those people that wanna trade him ?

    Tabak ~ 2G, 2A
    Josling ~ 1G, 3A

    The boys do it again!! Never would have predicted this sort of comeback to the season!!
    Good play is infectious.
    Of course, McGregor has to score in the last minute to ruin my 6-4 outcome. Only sour note of the night

    To be fair, 6 of those points were the last two games playing on a line he wouldn’t be playing on if Perreault wasn’t hurt...lol. Good to see him make the best of the opportunity. Might give the coaching staff more options going forward.

    Another solid start for Gaudreau. 3 deflections & one off Nolet's skate. He is gunna be a star in this league.

    Gotta feel for Gaudreau. All 4 goals against were deflections that no goaltender was going to stop. Just bad luck, plain and simple. Another good start for the young man.

    Josling now sits 2nd in league scoring. 1 point behind Byfield who has two games in hand. Josling has been on a mission this season.

    I had him pegged as a probable 40 goal scorer at the beginning of LAST year but that sure didn’t happen. Perhaps this year?

    Him & Rees have it cooking right now. No matter if its Roth or Tabak on the other side. This is what I've been expecting since i first saw Rees play. His skill is off the charts.. Josling is a perfect winger for him. Works hard, drives the net & a good finisher around the net.

    They've given Josling an extra assist. So a 5 points game tonight for Josling! Puts him into a tie for 1st in OHL scoring!

    With how Josling is playing, and with Rees and McGregor the Sting are playing great hockey. They have received great goaltending over this 5 game stretch and I think they have shown that the first 6 games were due to circumstances that are behind them now. Nice to see them competing hard every night now.

    Agreed congrats where congrats are earned nice bounce back by the Sting! Important for them to do well Sarnia needs butts in the seats. I know he is the type of guy you either love or hate but Hatcher drives me nuts. LOL ..... keep it up Sarnia.

    As a London fan I agree 100% with you. The only thing I would also agree to is if the shoe was on the other foot fans of Sarnia would act just like London fans are as well? If you can agree on that one I am on board with you all the way! Cheers on the recent Sting success.

    This whole deal is why the waiver system is in place. Prevents the “haves” from gathering all the players who would wish to play there. It’s a parity thing, and without it, only the big centers would be competitive.

    Josling with 20 points in 6 games is fire.

    These next 3 games should tell you alot about this team. @ Ottawa, Vs Flint & @ Owen Sound. 3 tough, tough teams. Obviously as of now no Perreault, Reesor, Kammerer which sucks & Gaudreau will be gone but it's a good test to see where we stand.

    A couple weeks ago I wouldn’t have given us a chance in any of them. I so underestimated the contribution of Rees and McGregor.
    Right now we could win anywhere between zero and three of those games.
    I’m picking two as my realistic target (since I’ve already picked an OT loss on Sunday....)

    Looking forward to this one today. I’m hoping the boys aren’t overly confident like some teams get while on a win streak. Gotta stick to the game plan and work for every inch of ice out there.

    No TV for the game. Provider in Ottawa isn't carrying it. That is just stupid annoying.

    Gaudreau gets the start. Sorta surprising. See what he can do!
