Oscar Dansk stopped 37-of-39 shots to earn the win for Erie.

Kevin Bailie, who has played every minute in the London net this season, stopped 34-of-36 shots in 65 minutes of action.

Dansk had to be solid as he and the Otters spotted London a 2-0 lead in the first period.

A Domi goal extended his point streak to nine games and he has 16 points in total.

Erie was 1-for-3 with the man advantage, while London 0-for-3.
