4pm Vancouver time. London Knights are 1 win away

The London Knights got out to a 3-0 lead over the Niagara IceDogs in game four of the Rogers OHL Championship Series and held on to win 4-1.
Ryan Rupert opened the scoring for the Knights 3:31 into the first period. Matt Rupert fed a pass to Max Domi who in turn slid it to a streaking Ryan Rupert. Rupert tucked the puck past the outstretched leg of Mark Visentin to take a 1-0 lead.
Vladislav Namestnikov and Austin Watson played give and go in the second period with Namestnikov finishing it off to steak the Knights to a two goal lead 7:47 into the second period. Six minutes later Andreas Athanasiou, playing in his first game of the final, did all the work breaking into the IceDogs zone. Visentin kicked his weak shot out to Chris Tierney who fired it into the back of the net giving the Knights a 3-0 lead.
6:23 into the third period and the IceDogs finally got on the board thanks to Myles Doan's shin. Steven Shipley's shot rebounded out in front of the Knights' net. Doan, tied up with the IceDogs defender had the puck bounce of his shin and into the net cutting the lead to 3-1.
Matt Rupert would respond for the Knights just 56 seconds later. On a two-on-one with his brother Ryan, Matt tried to pass the puck across but hit the IceDogs defender and had Visentin going the other way. Matt Rupert was able to chip his own pass past Visentin to make the final score 4-1.

Johnston gambled and lost. Shoulda brought in a top tender but decided to stay with a 2nd tier guy. Now they're about to finish in second place, and the list is being decimated. It's going to be 2008 all over again in Portland. Johnston=Preston.

Carruth - 3 GAA, .91758 SV%.
Brossoit? 3.4 GAA, .89873 SV%.

It's been a team let-down. Our goaltender has been the better of the two, statistically. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

I'm sure you'll use the "but you're still using" comeback to rebuttal. But it's fine, just know you're wrong, and Carruth has made people eat crow before.

stats don't tell the whole story. carruth has failed to come up with the big save when it's needed. that is nothing new.

Let me use your own words.In a thread below you talked about how high and mighty Johnston has made your roster.Ok great.But you can't have your cake and eat it to.The fact is Portland is loaded and should be able to win the whl on the guys in front of any goaltender on their own.By all rights portland is facing elimanation on MC's average talent.Like your organizetion denial will leave you in the same place again.Empty handed.
