Knights run into hot a goalie; lose 2-1
London Community News
The London Knights pick up their first loss of the season after dropping a 2-1 game to the Kitchener Rangers at Budweiser Gardens on Friday (Sept. 28).
The Knights had trouble getting the puck past Rangers’ netminder John Gibson, who finished the game with 42 saves.
London finally broke the Anaheim Ducks prospect when Seth Griffith scored with less than five minutes left in the game. Griffith has now found the back of the net in all three of London’s matchups to bring his goal total to six.
The Knights had trouble on the power play, going down a man just four times, but gave up both of the Rangers goals shorthanded—one in the first period and the other in the second. In the six goals London has given up this season, half of them have come on the power play.
London will face off against the Guelph Storm on Sunday (Sept. 30) at home with the puck dropping at 2 p.m. The Knights played the Storm last Sunday (Sept. 23) on the road where they stomped Guelph 8-2.
