Stolarz makes 40 saves as the Knights down the IceDogs

ST. CATHARINES, Ont. - Anthony Stolarz stopped 40-of-41 shots as the London Knights defeated the host Niagara IceDogs 5-1 in Ontario Hockey League action Sunday afternoon.

The 18-year-old goaltender is now 5-2-1 with a 2.25 goals-against average and .927 save percentage in 10 appearances with London since leaving the University of Nebraska-Omaha in early January.

Bo Horvat scored two goals, including one on a penalty shot, and added an assist for the Knights (40-12-4), who snapped a four-game winless streak, while Max Domi, Brett Welychka and Matt Rupert each scored once.

Domi's goal was his 31st of the season, which puts him two behind Seth Griffith for the team lead in goals, and his 71 points in 53 contests is good for ninth in OHL scoring.

Steven Shipley scored the lone goal for the IceDogs (26-27-4), who lost for the seventh time in 10 games, and Chris Festarini made 27 saves in the loss.

London finished the game 1 for 5 on the power play while Niagara scored once on seven chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
