PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Jake Patterson stopped 31 shots, including a penalty shot in the final minute of the game, as the London Knights doubled up the Plymouth Whalers 4-2 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action.
Brother Ryan and Matt Rupert each had a goal and an assist for the Knights (31-5-2), who extended their win streak to 23 games, while Max Domi and Brett Welychka scored a goal apeice.
Zach Bratina and Tom Wilson scored for the Whalers (15-12-8), who have dropped back-to-back contests, and Matt Mahalak turned aside 26 shots in defeat.
London went 0 for 3 on the power play while Plymouth failed to score on either of its opportunities with the man advantage.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
