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

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
