Maatta with three points as the Knights down the Wolves 4-2

SUDBURY, Ont. - Olli Maatta scored once and set up two more as the London Knights defeated the host Sudbury Wolves 4-2 on Sunday afternoon in Ontario Hockey League play.

Brett Welychka had a goal and an assist for the Knights (7-3-1), while Alex Broadhurst and Max Domi chipped in with two assists apiece.

Matt Rupert and Bo Horvat each scored once to round out London's offence and Seth Griffith had his point streak snapped at six games.

Joshua Leivo and Nathan Pancel scored for the Wolves (6-7-0), who have dropped four of their last five contests.

London's Kevin Bailie, the much busier of the two goaltenders, made 35 saves for the win as Sudbury's Joel Vienneau made 14 saves in a losing effort.

Both clubs had success with the man advantage as the Knights went 2-for-5 and the Wolves scored twice on seven power-play chances.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
