Sudbury came to London Sunday afternoon , on the heels of a victory over the Niagara IceDogs last night , snapping a 13 game losing streak . London on the other hand was riding a 5 game winning streak . Both teams were playing their third game in as many days , and it showed . Play started slow and sloppy , London coach Dale Hunter inverted his lines , the third and fourth lines saw first and second line ice time . Sudbury couldn’t sustain any pressure in the offensive zone . Call up Eric Henderson , a third round draft pick in 2014 , played his first game with the Knights and opened the scoring , banging a puck past Wolves goalie Troy Timpano . Sudbury would tie the score 3 minutes later on a rather soft goal on Knights keeper Michael Giugovaz . Mitch Marner on a goal scoring tear , put the Knights up 2-1 before the end of the period .
The second period saw Sudbury again tie the score at 2-2 , the posts were the Wolves best friend as London hit 3 of them before periods end . London ran into penalty trouble in the second , a result of being tired and not moving their feet . As a result Sudbury took the play to London for a considerable stretch , the shot total would reflect that by the second period buzzer 39-28 . Drake Rymsha and the aforementioned Marner would put the Knights ahead 4-2 for good .
The third period London would have to kill off their third 5 on 3 , which was successful . Sudbury was gassed by the puck drop , London would find the back of the net 3 more times , Yakimowicz , Berisha and Marner adding goals . Marners goal was his seventh in three games , it also was his second hat trick in2 games . London goalie Michael Giugovaz was good when called upon , facing 47 shots . London improves to 10-6 on the year and runs its winning streak to 6 games . Next up is a Thursday night game at home against the Guelph Storm .
