OHL Roundup: Stolarz makes 30 saves as London Knights down Erie Otters 3-1

ERIE, Pa. - Anthony Stolarz made 30 saves Wednesday as the London Knights defeated the Erie Otters 3-1 in the Ontario Hockey League.

Owen MacDonald, Bo Horvat and Miles Liberati had the goals for London (48-13-5), which got two assists from Josh Anderson.

Connor Crisp scored the only goal for Erie (18-40-8). Oscar Dansk made 21 saves in taking the loss.

The Knights played without three key regulars — defenceman Scott Harrington and forwards Seth Griffith and Matt Rupert. Griffith, who has missed the past month with a hand injury, and Rupert have a combined 59 goals and 128 points this season.

Elsewhere in the OHL it was: Kitchener 3, Guelph 2; Belleville 5, Oshawa 2; and Plymouth 8, Sault Ste. Marie 0.

At Erie, Penn., the Knights took a 1-0 lead on Liberati's third of the season at 11:24 of the first, with Max Domi picking up an assist for his team-leading 85th point.

After a scoreless second period, London extended its lead on Horvat's 32nd goal at 4:49 of the third before making it 3-0 on MacDonald's first in the OHL at 9:26.

Fellow rookie Paxton Leroux had an assist on the goal for his first career point.

The Otters finally broke through Stolarz and the Knights' defence midway through the third on a short-handed goal from Crisp, his 22nd of the campaign.

Erie had a chance at another short-handed goal late in the game, but Stolarz stopped Otters rookie Connor McDavid in close.

Rangers 3, Storm 2

At Guelph, Derek Schoenmakers scored his second goal of the night midway through the third period as Kitchener (38-19-9) got past the Storm (38-23-5).


Bulls 5, Generals 2

At Belleville, Ont., Brendan Gaunce had a hat trick as the Bulls (42-16-8) clinched their fourth East Division title in seven years with a victory over Oshawa (40-22-4).


Whalers 8, Greyhounds 0

At Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., Mitchell Heard had three goals and an assist as Plymouth (40-17-9) hammered the Greyhounds (34-25-6).

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
