London Knights 21 Straight Wins December 17, 2012 8:31 AM

The London Knights have quietly put together a mind-numbing 21 straight wins. With a 6-5 over the Kingston Frontenacs the Knights head into the holiday break on what may be an unstopable roll. The London Knights are now chasing the OHL record of 25 straight wins held by the 1983-84 Kitchener Rangers, and are now just one game away from tying the second-longest win streak in Ontario Hockey League history set by the Barrie Colts in the 2009-10 season

The Knights will be looking to pick up their 22nd victory in just 56 days, while the Colts managed to do it in 67.

London is squeaking by games, winning eight of them by just one-goal in the streak, including this past weekend when London beat Guelph 4-3 in a shootout Saturday (Dec. 15) and Owen Sound 3-2 on Friday (Dec. 14). Four of those have victories have come way of overtime or shootout.

Seth Griffith kept the London Knights rolling and has become captain clutch.

Griffith scored twice, including the winner 3:13 into overtime, as the London Knights edged the visiting Kingston Frontenacs 6-5 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Griffith now has five game-winning goals and 27 goals and 58 points in 36 games, which is good for third in OHL scoring.

On Sunday, the Knights trailed by two goals with nine minutes left in the third period. The 19-year-old Griffith, at the end of a 90-second shift, scored to ignite his club, and then watched Ryan Rupert force sudden death with his second of the game.

Griffith then scored a shootout goal to give the Knights the win. Alex Galchenyuk may be the best player in the league right now, but Griffith, with his timely goals and top-notch output, might be the most important to his team.

25 wins or not, this is one impressive roll.
