Oshawa Generals-London Knights

It was just not to be for the Oshawa Generals Monday night.

Down 2-0 after two lopsided losses to the best team in the OHL in the league championship series, the youngest team in the league treated the hometown fans to a near-perfect start in game three, staking themselves to a 3-0 lead in the first and a 6-2 advantage after two periods.

And then the roof caved in. The Knights, who have been dominant all through the playoffs, sored four unanswered goals in the third to tie it up and a Henry Brzustewicz tip-in two minutes into double overtime delivered a gut punch to the Generals for a 7-6 win and a 3-0 stranglehold on the series.

Oshawa, who welcomed back two of their three wounded players in Connor Punnett and Matthew Buckley, will try to stave off elimination in game four Wednesday night at the Tribute Centre.

Kaspar Halttunen led the Knights with three goals while Connor Lockhart and Luca D’Amata scored two each for the Generals.

Puck drop for Wednesday’s do-or-die game is 7 p.m.
