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

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
