The Sarnia Sting was on the defensive from the drop of the puck in Ottawa Friday night and was unable to get on the board, losing 5-0.

The 67’s led 2-0 after the first period and 4-0 after two.

Nathan Todd had two goals and an assist to lead Ottawa.

The Sting got some players back from injury including leading scorer Nikita Korostelev and Orleans Ont. native Patrick White.

Late in the game, however, overage defenseman Josh Chapman was given a game misconduct for a flagrant elbow to the head of an Ottawa player and will be subject to league disciplinary action.

Sarnia was outshot 26-21 with veteran goaltender Taylor Dupuis taking the loss.

Liam Herbst recorded the shutout for Ottawa.

The Sting (23-18-4-2) will look to mount a better effort Saturday night in Kingston in the final game of its eastern road swing.
