Danial Singer then scored two straight goals on the power play to tie the game 3-3. Jordan Kyrou’s goal with less than three minutes in regulation briefly returned the lead to the Sting, as Singer tied the game again for Niagara with 34 seconds left in regulation for his hat trick, forcing overtime.
Dineen’s winner came with 33 seconds left in the overtime period.
Fazio had 37 saves for the win. Stephen Dhillon picked up 32 saves for Niagara.
