Tonio Stranges scored two goals and added two assists as the London Knights beat Rangers 6-2 in Kitchener on Sunday.

Logan Mailloux scored his first two Ontario Hockey League goals for the Knights. London drew 4-0 against Rangers that season.

Kirill Steklov got the Knights going in just 16 seconds with a wrist shot from the left, which went 1-0 in London through Rangers goalkeeper Pavel Cajan. London captain Luke Evangelista got an assist to extend his points streak to 11 games. Evangelista and Sean McGurn each have 12 points against the Rangers this season. McGurn had a few helpers that day.

Stranges teamed up with Cody Morgan to put Landon Sim on the side of the Ranger network a little more than two minutes into the start of the second period in an effort to extend London’s lead.

Stranges wasn’t finished there. He grabbed a puck just inside his own blue line and stormed down the ice in a breakaway group, scoring his second of the game and eighth of the year. The Knights led 4-0 after the second period.

Kitchener pushed back in the third period with goals from Lucan, Ontario, native Navrin mother and former OHL Cup MVP Mike Petizian, but Logan Mailloux shot two wrist shots past Cajan later in the final period to score the goal.

Brett Brochu made 27 saves for the Knights to claim his 50th career OHL win. He is now 50-11-1.

In 2020-21, the three major junior leagues that make up the Canadian Hockey League had very different seasons.

The QMJHL pushed through more than a couple of COViD-19 issues and actually crowned a champion at the Victoriaville Tigres.

The WHL split their league into four department-based bubbles and played 24 games without a playoff, and the Ontario Hockey League tried but managed to get going for a year.

At the moment it is the Québec League that is on pause. They announced on December 21, 2021 that they would suspend team activities until January 7. This was extended to January 14th without games until at least January 17th.

The OHL met shortly after the New Year started and made the decision to move on despite the challenge of not having fans in Ontario’s buildings until at least January 26th.

The Western Hockey League announced that it would also end a season with 68 games. Nine out of ten WHL games were postponed on January 8th.

Ex-Knight meets Ex-Knight

Jarred Tinordi led the Knights to the 2012 Memorial Cup Final. Anthony Stolarz was one of two goalkeepers who held London back from appearing in the Memorial Cup for the next season in Saskatoon, Sask.

The two met in Anaheim, California, on Saturday, January 8th, and Tinordi kicked off a big third period for the New York Rangers with his first NHL goal since January 16, 2020 when the Rangers knocked the Ducks off with 4: 1 defeated.

Tinordi’s goal stood up as the winner of the game when Stolarz fell victim to pucks that hit his teammates’ thugs twice in the game. Tinordi was the second of them when his point shot hit former Sarnia Sting striker Jacob Perrault’s stick and into the net. Perrault made his debut in the National Hockey League.

Despite the defeat, Stolarz played well for the Ducks, stopping 36 of 39 shots.
