Griffith’s Winning Goal Named Highlight of the Night
Midway through the second period, on the powerplay, Griffith split the Saskatoon defence, putting a beautiful move on one defender, before roofing a shot over the shoulder of Blades goalie Andrey Makarov. Assists on the goal went to Alex Broadhurt and Olli Maatta.
The goal was so nice, that TSN selected it as their Sportscentre “Highlight of the Night,” beating out goals and saves from three NHL playoff games.
Griffith is now tied for the team lead in points at the Memorial Cup with Rodney’s Bo Horvat. Both players have 5 points.
The London Knights now face the Portland Winterhawks Friday May 24 in the Memorial Cup Semi-Final.
The winner of the game will play the Halifax Mooseheads who received a bye to the Final on Sunday.
