Kitchener embarrassed their division rivals and Namestnikov (pictured) on Wednesday night, 8-3. Namestnikov was stripped of the puck while on the power play early, leading to the first Rangers goal. Former Lightning camper Seth Griffith had two goals (33, 34) for London, who outshot Kitchener 48-35. Namestnikovâ€™s minus-3 rating tied a career worst for the Lightningâ€™s 2011 first rounder, set last January 28 in a 6-4 loss to Erie. London is now â€œonlyâ€ eight points up on Kitchener for first in the Midwest Division.
