WINDSOR, Ont. - Josh Ho-Sang had a goal and two assists and Jaroslav Pavelka made 38 saves Thursday as the Windsor Spitfires defeated the London Knights 6-3 in the Ontario Hockey League.

Brady Vail, Patrick Seiloff, Derek Schoenmakers, Ben Johnson and Kerby Rychel had the other goals for the Spitfires (8-6-3).

Seth Griffith, Tyler Ferry and Alex Broadhust replied for the Knights (8-5-2).

The Knights led by two in the second period and carried a one-goal advantage in the third, but both leads evaporated before the Spitfires took a 4-3 lead on Johnson's third goal of the season midway through the final period.

Ho-Sang added an insurance goal before Rychel scored into an empty net to round out the scoring.

Pavelka, the game's first star, made several acrobatic saves on a night where the Spitfires were badly outplayed at times.

Kevin Bailie replaced London starting netminder Jake Paterson after Johnson's goal. Paterson made 24 saves before being pulled, while Bailie surrendered Ho-Sang's goal on the only shot he faced.

The loss extended the Knights' losing streak to three games.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
