Good Knight London!

This photo says it all!

Kitchener beat London in an 8-3 game in front of over 9000 London fans! It was sweet victory! I have always had a soft spot for the goalies on the team and Brandon Maxwell has been taking quite a beating in the media. I was reading the KW Record and this is what it said........

Brandon Maxwell stretched out his arms and embraced his coach Steve Spott.

“We believe in him and he believes in us,” Maxwell said of Spott after Monday's 8-3 Game 7 win over the London Knights before 9,090 at the John Labatt's Center.

“It’s really great to play for a coach like that.”

This makes me smile! This is why I love OHL hockey so much. It can be competitive, aggressive and exciting. When it comes down to it, the players on this team are just kids and they lean on their teammates and coaches (their family) for support.

Jason will never play at this level of hockey, but he has that same 'family' that he has grown up with since he was 5 or 6 years old. I am thankful he has been part of a team that has given him some of my favourite qualities.

Congratulations to the Rangers and good luck in the next round!
