The London Knights saw their season come to an end with a 6-3 loss to the Guelph Storm in Game 7 of their playoff series on Tuesday.

The Storm scored late in the first period to take the lead, but Alex Formenton scored 33 seconds into the second frame to tie the game. London took a 3-1 lead after Connor McMichael and Liam Foudy scored back-to-back goals before the four-minute mark of the period. However, the Storm scored 6:59 into the frame to make it a one-goal game heading into the third period.

The Knights dropped further and further behind in the final frame as the Storm rallied to score five unanswered goals to earn the win.

Knights goaltender Jordan Kooy made 21 saves out of 26 shots on net.

The Storm won the best-of-seven series after battling back from a 3-0 series deficit.  Guelph will now move on to face the Saginaw Spirit in the OHL Western Conference Final.
