London closed out their conference semifinal series against Saginaw with a 5-3 road win. London is likely breathing a sigh of relief as the series was much closer than the 4-2 final game tally. London was down two games to one heading back to Michigan and got a big road win. Then Namestnikov made a strong individual effort in overtime of Game 5 to score the game winner and give London a pivotal win. Namestnikov has four points in his last two games after taking some criticism from the London fanbase for failing to make his mark early in the series. The Knights will await the winner of the Kitchener-Plymouth series. Plymouth leads 3-2 after shutting out the Rangers on Saturday.
