Knights extend win streak to 17 games

LONDON, Ont. - Bo Horvat, Tyler Ferry and Ryan Rupert each had a goal and an assist as the London Knights extended their winning streak to 17 games with a 5-2 victory over the visiting Niagara IceDogs on Friday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Alex Broadhurst, Ryan Rupert and Matt Rupert also scored for the Knights (25-5-2) and Jake Patterson turned away 34-of-36 shots for the win.

Brett Ritchie scored twice for the IceDogs (19-11-2), who have dropped back-to-back games, and Christopher Festarini made 30 saves in a losing cause.

London went 1 for 1 on the power play while Niagara failed to earn any chances with the man advantage.

The Knights have a chance to tie their club record of 18 straight victories, which was set on Dec. 8th, 2004, on Sunday when they host the Mississauga Steelheads.

Quote of the Day

It's such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started. It means a lot to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career.
