Griffith scores twice as the Knights set franchise record for consecutive wins

LONDON, Ont. - The London Knights set a franchise record on Friday with its 19th consecutive win as they beat the visiting Owen Sound Attack 3-2 in Ontario Hockey League action.

Seth Griffith's scored twice for the Knights (27-5-2), including the winning goal with just four second remaining in the third period, while Bo Horvat had the other.

The Attack (22-8-3), who got their goals from Holden Cook and Daniel Catenacci, have now lost three in a row after previously winning eight of nine.

Jake Patterson stopped 27-of-29 shots for the win as Brandon Hope made 28 saves in a losing cause.

London went 2 for 9 on the power play while Owen Sound went 1 for 7.

The OHL record for consecutive wins is 25, which was set by the 1983-84 Kitchener Rangers.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
