As if sending a message to the rest of the hockey world, Wallaceburg’s Seth Griffith has put the London Knights on his back and is single handedly carrying the OHL team through their first round series against the Windsor Spitfires.

After scoring two goals Sunday afternoon in the London Knights game two win, Griffith scored another pair for the Knights Monday powering his team to a commanding 3-0 series lead over the Spitfires.

Each of Griffith’s goals in the series has come on a powerplay, a situation he was lethal in all season.

Monday, Griffith opened the scoring for the Knights on a shot assisted by Greg McKegg and Olli Maatta. After Windsor answered early in the second period, Chris Tierney put the Knights back in the lead, before Griffith made it 3-1 with his second of the game. Maatta connected again with Griffith on the goal, with Austin Watson also picking up an assist.

Griffith’s goal would prove to be the game winner after the Windsor Spitfires pulled within one before the final buzzer sounded with the score sitting at 3-2.

Prior to the series, Griffith explained the game plan against the Windsor Spitfires, “We have just got to make sure we keep it simple and we have to match their work ethic if we want to win.”

If the first three games of the series are any indication, it seems Griffith and the Knights are not simply matching the Spitfires work ethic, but are the one’s who need to be matched.

Game four of the best-of-seven series returns to Windsor Thursday evening at 7:05pm where the Knights will have a chance to close out the Spitfires.
