Knights rally from 3-0 deficit, win sixth in a row, 4-3 over Generals in OT

LONDON, Ont. - The London Knights won their sixth OHL game in a row, as they rallied from a 3-0 deficit in the third period to defeat the Oshawa Generals 4-3 in overtime Thursday.

Seth Griffith scored the winner for London (14-5-2) on the power play 2:40 into the extra period.

Two power play goals by Max Domi and a Bo Horvat equalizer at 19:39 sent the game to overtime.

The Generals (11-9-3) took two too-many-men penalties in the closing six minutes of regulation en route to their fourth loss in a row.

Oshawa opened a 3-0 lead in the first period, including a Bradley Latour deflection off a Matt Petgrave point shot at 1:46.

Boone Jenner made it 2-0 on a solo rush from his own blue-line, then skated through the middle and cut to the left side before directing the puck toward the crease. His shot deflected off the skate of London defenceman Olli Maatta and past Kevin Bailie.

Bailie played four years with Oshawa, and was acquired by the Knights as an overage goalie in the off-season.

He let in two of 13 shots before being pulled in favour of Jake Patterson, who made 23 saves.

Geoffrey Schemitsch scored the other Oshawa goal at 19:17 of the first period on the power play.

Quote of the Day

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
