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.

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
