Stolarz stops 34 shots as Knights blank Battalion 1-0 in SO

LONDON, Ont. - Anthony Stolarz stopped 34 shots as the London Knights blanked the visiting Brampton Battalion 1-0 in a shootout on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action.

It was the first shutout of the 18-year-old's OHL career and in six games this season he is now 4-0-0 with a 1.84 goals-against average and .937 save percentage.

Seth Griffith, Matt Rupert and Max Domi all scored in the shootout for the Knights (38-9-3).

Matej Machovsky turned away all 28 shots he faced in a losing cause for the Battalion (23-18-9), who have earned at least one point in six straight games.

London went 0 for 3 on the power play while Brampton failed to score on five chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
