The Knights rebounded on Friday as Stranges recorded a goal and an assist in a 5-2 victory. He was named the first star of Game 3 on Sunday afternoon in Kitchener, recording three assists as the Knights defeated the Rangers 4-3. Stranges earned star of the game recognition in all three outings and leads the OHL Playoffs in scoring through a weekend of action.
