Knights tie franchise record of 18 straight victories

LONDON, Ont. - Max Domi and Seth Griffith had a goal and two assists apiece as the London Knights beat the visiting Mississauga Steelheads 5-2 on Sunday afternoon in Ontario Hockey League play.

The victory ties London's franchise record for consecutive wins with 18, which was first set on Dec. 8th 2004.

Matt Rupert, Bo Horvat and Kyle Platzer also scored for the Knights (26-5-2), who improved to 13-3-2 on home ice, while Alex Broadhurst chipped in with two assists.

Dylan Smoskowitz scored both goals for the Steelheads (17-11-2), who are now winless in their last last five outings.

Kevin Bailie stopped 30 shots for his 15th win of the season as Spencer Martin turned aside 35-of-40 shots in a losing cause.

Both clubs were successful on the power play as London went 3 for 6 and Mississauga scored twice on 10 chances with the man advantage.

London will attempt to set a new club record for consecutive victories on Friday Dec. 14th when they host the Owen Sound Attack.

I was surprised. I knew I got it. It's tough. You never know how hard it is until it registers on the gun. I got pretty much all I could into and you just hope for the best.
