MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Philip McRae had a goal and an assist and goaltender Trevor Cann picked up a shutout in only his second start since being traded to London as the Knights blanked the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors 2-0 in Ontario Hockey League action Sunday afternoon.
Cann, traded to the Knights on Thursday by Peterborough, made 24 saves for his second shutout of the season. He blanked the Majors 1-0 earlier this season when played for the Petes.
"I had something to prove," said Cann. "You don't want the team guessing whether they made the right decision or not."
McRae scored his 10th goal of the season midway through the first period and then set up Nazem Kadri for his 12th marker as the Knights (14-5-0-1) won their third game in a row.
"I'm starting to play a little better and I'm getting my strength back," said McRae, who missed the first six games of the season while he recovered from mononucleosis.
"We're playing better defensively as a team," said McRae. "If you play well defensively, the offence tends to take care of itself."
It was the third time the Majors (7-10-0-0) were shutout on home ice this season and Sunday's loss was their fifth in a row.
Rookie goaltender JP Anderson stopped 21 shots in the Mississauga net.
