Long lineups will likely be the order of the day Saturday when tickets for game six of the OHL Western Conference final go on sale at the Sarnia Sting box office.

The Sting guaranteed a third home game in the series with a 6-3 win over London last night to even the best-of-seven championship series at two games each.

Sarnia scored three times in a little less than six minutes late in the second period to erase a 3-2 deficit and go on to beat the London Knights, before a season-high crowd of 4,762 at Progressive Auto Sales Arena.

Nolan Burke led the Sting with two goals and an assist and was named the first star of the contest. His second goal iced the game into an empty net in the third period. Burke also went 11-of-13 from the dot.

Ty Voit had a goal and an assist for the Sting with the others going to Brenden Anderson, Marcus Limpar-Lantz and Easton Wainwright. Sasha Pastujov continued his strong play with three assists and Ryan Mast contributed two helpers, Ben Gaudreau made 23 saves for his 10th playoff victory of the season.

Denver Barkey had a goal and an assist for the Knights. George Diaco and Ryan Winterton had the others. It was Winterton’s fourth goal of the series.
