After Windsor stayed close in the first three games, London finally broke out of their “offensive slump” and put up a snowman on the Spits in Game 4 to complete the sweep of their first round series. Fans and followers of the Knights, who are loaded at forward, have been wondering where the offense has been the last few weeks. Hopefully for the Knights they found what they were looking for. Namestnikov had a goal and an assist in Game 1 but has been quiet since. He did have a helper in Game 4. London and Brampton are the only teams to advance so far in the OHL playoffs.
