Taylor scores in OT as the Knights end Ottawa's streak with 3-2 victory @NHLdotcom

LONDON, Ont. - Justin Taylor scored the winning goal on a power play in overtime as the London Knights came back to derail the streaking Ottawa 67's 3-2 on Sunday afternoon in the Ontario Hockey League.

The loss snapped a seven-game winning streak for the 67's, their longest run of the season.

The Knights (29-8-0-1) rallied from a 2-goal deficit in the second period. Philip McRae, London's leading scorer, tied the game with 59 seconds remaining in the third period. Then Ottawa defenceman Julien Demers was called for hooking in overtime, setting up the power play that led to Taylor's winner.

Logan Couture and Dalton Smith scored to put the 67's (22-14-1-2) up 2-0 in the second before Tucker Hunter cut the lead to one late in the period. McRae assisted on Hunter's marker and now has 43 points (21 goals, 22 assists) through 32 games this season.

Trevor Cann recovered from a rough outing against Sarnia on Friday, making 21 saves to win his 13th game as a Knight. Ottawa netminder Adam Courchaine stopped 23 shots.
