Knights Win Again

Erie, PA | by Fred Wallace  

London wins their seventh playoff game in a row after a 6-1 win.

The London Knights remain red hot in the OHL playoffs.

The Knights won their seventh game in a row, downing the Erie Otters 6-1 on Sunday night to take a 2-0 lead in the best of seven Western Conference Final.

Daniel Bernhardt scored twice for the Knights, who last lost Game 5 against the Owen Sound Attack in the first round of the playoffs.

Since then, London has won seven straight.

The Knights have yet to lose on the road in these OHL playoffs, winning all seven games away from Budweiser Gardens.

Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Mitchell Marner scored the first of three Knights goals in the first period on Sunday.

Aaron Berisha, Matthew Tkachuk and Nicolas Mattinen also scored for London, while Darren Raddysh scored on the power play for Erie.

Tyler Parsons made 26 saves for the win in net. Devin Williams took the loss after kicking out 19-of-25 shots.

Otters backup Jake Lawr played 4:35 in the first period, but didn't face a shot.

London's Owen MacDonald received a game misconduct for being the third man involved in an altercation during the third period. Erie's Nick Betz was also ejected on the same stoppage of play for an instigator penalty.

The Knights were 2 for 6 on the power play while Erie scored once on three chances with the man advantage.

The OHL Eastern Conference Final resumes Monday night in St. Catherines.

The Niagara Ice Dogs lead the Barrie Colts 2-0 in that series.
