Penalty Kill helps Spits top Knights in London
Saddled with five penalties in the third period, the penalty kill came up huge for the visiting Spitfires in a big, 5-2 win over the Knights at Bud Gardens on Friday night. Windsor (2-0-0-0) killed six penalties in all and is now a perfect 12-for-12 to start the season, fending off chance after chance by a London (0-1-0-0) team never led in its 2017-18 season and home opener.

London - September 22, 2017 - Saddled with five penalties in the third period, the penalty kill came up huge for the visiting Spitfires in a big, 5-2 win over the Knights at Bud Gardens on Friday night.

Windsor (2-0-0-0) killed six penalties in all and is now a perfect 12-for-12 to start the season, fending off chance after chance by a London (0-1-0-0) team never led in its 2017-18 season and home opener.

Igor Larionov opened the scoring less than three minutes into the game, tipping a Luke Boka pass past Tyler Johnson (27 saves) for his first of the season.

Tied at 2-2 late in the second period, winger Chris Playfair beat Johnson with a quick wrist shot at 19:12, giving the Spitfires a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.

After Tyler Angle (1) made it a 4-2 game at 12:50 of the third period, London head coach Dale Hunter pulled his goalie with nearly six minutes left to play, setting up a lengthy 6-on-4 and, eventually, 6-on-3 advantage. But the game’s first star, Michael DiPietro 30 saves made several outstanding saves, and the likes of Aaron Luchuk, Boka, Cole Purboo and Austin McEneny put forth desperate efforts to thwart the home side.

McEneny had a pair of assists, while Luchuk kicked in an empty net goal and assist for his second straight multi-point game.

The Spitfires are off Saturday before playing host to the Guelph Storm Sunday afternoon at the WFCU Centre (2:05).
