Bailie 24 saves, Broadhurst two goals as the Knights blank the Petes

LONDON, Ont. - Kevin Bailie made 24 saves for his second shutout of the season and Alex Broadhurst scored a pair of first-period goals as the London Knights topped the visiting Peterborough Petes 2-0 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League play.

The Knights (18-5-2) have now won 10 straight games and have moved one point ahead of the Owen Sound Attack for first overall in the OHL standings.

The Petes (5-17-3) have dropped three in a row and have just one win in their past 11 outings to sit last overall with just 13 points.

Matt D'Agostini stopped 36-of-38 shots in the loss and is now winless in 10 games on the season.

Broadhurst's game winner was finished on a two-on-one as Seth Griffith gathered in the puck just before the Peterborough blue line and feathered a pass across at 11:17 of the first.

Griffith now has 25 points, including eight goals, during a 12-game point streak.

London was 0-for-6 on the power play while Peterborough went 0-for-3.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
