Storm come back in third to down London Knights
GUELPH – The Guelph Storm scored four times in the third period, including twice in the final minute, to down the London Knights 5-3 in Ontario Hockey League play Friday night at the Sleeman Centre.
After a scoreless first period, the Knights outscored the Storm 3-2 in the second. However, the locals shot ahead when Pavel Gogolev and Matthew Papais scored 50 seconds apart before the third period was seven minutes old. London tied it just over two minutes later and that set the stage for the final-minute goals by Cam Hill and Eric Uba, the final one with 15 seconds to go being scored into an empty net.
That goal for Uba was his second of the game while single assists were awarded to Gogolev, Josh Wainman, Uba, Jacob Maillet, Clark Hiebert, Danny Zhilkin, Keegan Stevenson and Fedor Gordeev.
Alec Regula scored all three goals for London while Jason Willms, Connor McMichael, Liam Foudy, Ryan Merkley and Billy Moskal each had one assist.
The Storm outshot London 36-35, but went scoreless on two power plays while the Knights went 1-for-4.
Nico Daws had 32 saves for the Storm while Dylan Myskiw had 31 for London.
The win leaves the Storm at 28-19-2-5 and London at 38-15-1-1.
The Storm are to host the Niagara IceDogs (17-33-4-1) Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Sleeman Centre.
