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

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
