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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
