Jake Patterson makes 31 saves as London Knights blank Guelph Storm 3-0

GUELPH, Ont. - Jake Patterson stopped all 31 shots he faced as the London Knights blanked the Guelph Storm 3-0 in the Ontario Hockey League on Sunday.

After two scoreless periods, Remi Elie opened the scoring midway through the third with his fourth goal of the season.

The Storm pulled goalie Garret Sparks with just over a minute left to play in an attempt tie the game, but Chris Tierney fired in an empty-netter at 18:55 to make it 2-0.

Guelph went on the power play for the final minute of the game, but Olli Maatta scored short-handed to put the game out of reach.

Sparks made 26 on 27 shots for the Storm (11-6-1), who went 0-for-5 on the power play.

The Knights improved to 10-5-2.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
