London Knights 6 @ Mississauga St. Michaelâ€™s Majors 3
C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 11 GP, 6-5-11, +5, 12 PIM
Namestnikov (pictured) earned the primary assist on Londonâ€™s final goal as the Knights beat the defending Memorial Cup finalists 6-3. Twins Matt (2+1) and Ryan (1+1) Rupert combined for five points on the night. They're eligible for next summer's draft. Despite a loss to Sarnia last game out the Knights maintained their No.1 CHL ranking this week.
London Knights 3 @ Sarnia Sting 4
C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM (hooking, high sticking)
Season Totals: 10 GP, 6-4-10, +6, 12 PIM
Namestnikov was scoreless for his second straight game as London, the CHLâ€™s top ranked team, fell in Sarnia to Steven Stamkosâ€™s alma mater, 4-3. Likely 2012 top-3 pick Nail Yakupov had a goal â€“ his seventh â€“ and an assist for Sarnia. Devils pick Reid Boucher scored his 10th goal in nine games for Sarnia. Their goals erased a 3-2 third period lead for the Knights. The loss was only Londonâ€™s second of the season. They continue to lead the league in goals with just over five a game.
Not much to get excited about Saturday night. One streak ends, one continues - but not the right one.
