Griffith scores in OT as the Knights win 21st in a row

LONDON, Ont. - Seth Griffith scored twice, including the winner 3:13 into overtime, as the London Knights edged the visiting Kingston Frontenacs 6-5 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League action.

The victory extends London's franchise-best win streak to 21 games, which is just four shy of the OHL record set by the 1983-84 Kitchener Rangers.

Ryan Rupert also scored twice for the Knights (29-5-2), who improved to 15-3-2 on home ice, while Chris Tierney had a goal and two assists.

Josh Anderson scored twice as Bo Horvat and Jacob Jammes each had two assists to round out London's offence.

Sam Povorozniouk had a goal and an assist for the Frontenacs (17-15-2), who have dropped back-to-back games, and Cody Alcock, Samuel Schutt, Slater Doggett and Jean Dupuy each scored once.

Jake Patterson started in goal for the London but was replaced after allowing three goals on 19 shots through 23 minutes of action. Kevin Bailie stopped 7-of-9 shots in the final 42 minutes of relief to pick up the win while Colin Furlong turned away 42-of-48 shots in a losing cause for Kingston.

The Knights went 1 for 4 on the power play while the Frontenacs failed to score on either of their chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
