The London Nationals upped their record to 15-2 with a Wednesday come-from-behind win over the Komoka Kings, 4-3.

Down 3-1 after the first period, the Nats shut down the Kings with solid defence and stellar goaltending from Jukka Schotter. He stopped all 13 shots he faced after replacing starter Zachary Springer, who had an uncharacteristic start, allowing three goals on eight shots.

The second period ended 3-2 in favour of Komoka. The Nats’ Josh Castle scored the winner at 12:38 into the third period. He assisted on Riley MacRae’s tying goal in the third.

London out shot Komoka, 34-21, in a game that was almost penalty-free.

The Kings got goals from Jacob Rochford, Noah Mazzilli and Liam Whittaker.

Next Game: Wednesday, November 14 London hosts the Strathroy Rockets at 7 p.m. It’s the Nationals’ Salute to Service night when fans are encouraged to wear red in honour of service men and women past and present. All service personnel will be admitted free of charge.
