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

Because of the way they play and their skill set I don't think they're fourth-line players, so in my mind I'm looking at one of those guys I'll have to move over to the wing.
