After a close 3-2 game one in London, the Knights won game two 7-0 and game three 7-4 to take a commanding series lead against the Guelph Storm.

In game four, the Storm were able to take their first lead of the series when Nate Schnarr scored on a first period power play. The Knights battled back and tied the game late in the first to bring the game tied 1-1 into the second period. The Storm scored two goals in the opening 6 minutes of the second period with goals by Nate Schnarr and Nick Suzuki to give the Storm a 3-1 lead heading into the final frame. Twelve seconds into the third period, London’s Billy Moskal scored to bring the game within one goal, but Liam Hawel would score what would turn out to be the game winner with close to five minutes left to give the Storm a 4-2 lead. The Knights would add a power play goal late to bring the game within one once again, but the Storm would hold on to win game four by a score of 4-3.
