Tierney scores in OT as Knights take 3-1 series lead against Rangers

KITCHENER, Ont. - Chris Tierney scored the winner at 13:24 of overtime as the London Knights edged the host Kitchener Rangers 4-3 on Wednesday in Ontario Hockey League playoff action.

The Rangers now find themselves down 3-1 in the best-of-seven second round matchup, despite goaltender John Gibson turning away a career-high 58 shots in defeat.

Seth Griffith had a goal and an assist for the Knights while Matt Rupert and Nikita Zadorov added single goals.

Tierney chipped in an assist for a two-point night and has three goals and 11 points in eight post-season games.

Anthony Stolarz stopped 42-of-45 shots for the victory.

Tobias Rieder had a goal and an assist for the Rangers and Ben Fanelli and Justin Bailey scored a goal apiece.

London went 1 for 2 on the power play while Kitchener scored once on five chances with the man advantage.

The Knights can wrap up the series on Friday when they host the Rangers for Game 5 at Budweiser Gardens.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
