Patterson stops 21 shots as the Knights blank the Attack for 11th straight win

OWEN SOUND, Ont. - Jake Patterson stopped all 21 shots he faced as the London Knights blanked the host Owen Sound Attack 3-0 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Matt Rupert had a goal and an assist for the Knights (19-5-0), who have won 11 games in a row, while Seth Griffith and Chris Tierney each scored once.

Griffith's goal extended his point streak to 13 games and he now has 19 goals and 44 points in 26 contests, which is good for second in OHL scoring.

Jordan Binnington turned away 37-of-40 shots in a losing cause for the Attack (17-5-3), who had their three-game winning streak halted.

Binnington, who has had a shutout in his each of his previous three starts, went 207:22 without giving up a goal before Griffith beat him at 5:54 of the second period.

London went 1-for-4 on the power play while Owen Sound failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
