Bonk scores twice as Knights extend point streak to 22
LONDON, ON – Oliver Bonk scored twice for the London Knights in a 5-1 win against the Windsor Spitfires on Friday night to help the green and gold earn a point for a 22nd consecutive game and bring their win streak to six.
Trailing 1-0 with under five minutes to go in the first period, Bonk tied things up by tipping home a Sam Dickinson point shot on the power play for his 20th goal of the season and eighth in his last nine games. As the midway mark of the middle frame approached, the Philadelphia Flyers prospect capitalized on the man advantage again – this time, on a one-timer from his bumper position to put London (37-11-0-3) ahead 3-1.
With three points on the night, Easton Cowan (1G, 2A) extended his point streak to 20 games, notching 40 in that span. Meanwhile, Bonk and Denver Barkey, who dished two assists, have tallied points in seven straight outings.
The lone goal for Windsor (15-29-3-2) was scored by Noah Morneau on the power play, with the helpers coming from Colton Smith and Carson Woodall.
Alec Leonard and Kasper Halttunen joined Bonk and Cowan to round out the scoring for the Knights.
Owen Willmore, London’s Player of the Month for January, had a 34-save win – his 12th of the season. On the opposing end, Max Donoso turned away 30 shots for the Spitfires in the loss.
London now holds a perfect 3-0-0-0 record against Windsor this season.
On Sunday afternoon, the Knights are in Oshawa for a tilt with the Generals – their first meeting of the year.
