The Sarnia Sting set a team record for most goals scored in a game in a 13-3 rout of the Erie Otters Friday that saw Reid Boucher score 4 times and captain Charlie Sarault record 7 assists.
After suffering losses to division rivals in the past 5 games, Head Coach Jacques Beaulieu said the team was hungry for the win.
Boucher’s 4 goals brought his season total to 57 just one away from tying Steve Stamkos’ team record of 58.
Beaulieu says he has never worked with a player like Boucher.
As for Boucher, he says he will be happy once he passes the record.
Sarault’s 7 helpers moved him to within one point of Sault Ste Marie’s Nick Cousins for the OHL scoring lead with 97 points including 77 assists.
With his 4 point night Nikolay Goldobin moved ahead of Erie’s Connor McDavid in rookie scoring with 58 points to McDavid’s 56.
The Sting now travels to Plymouth to battle the Whalers.
