See how close Christopoulos was to 50

It was the only storyline that mattered Saturday night when the Windsor Spitfires took the ice against the London Knights in their regular season finale. Would Alex Christopoulos get his 50th?


He scored three goals Friday night in London to help the Spits clinch their second straight conference title bringing his goal total to 49. Christopoulos had chances. His best one came in the third, on the powerplay.



He was streaking through the slot and appeared to have a falling London goalie Zach Bowen beaten. Christopoulos tried to deposit the puck into the net on the backhand but Bowen got his stick down on the ice in time to make the stop.

Maggio was at the side of the net, picked up the rebound and scored his 54th of the season. After pausing, Christopoulos acknowledged Maggio's goal as the Spits cut their deficit to 4-2.


Seconds after coming off for what seemed to be Christopoulos' last shift, head coach Marc Savard called a time out and pulled goaltender Matt Onuska. With seconds remaining in the game Anthony Cristoforo fired a pass from the point to Christopoulos who was standing at the side of the net. The puck hit the heel of the stick on the one-time attempt.


When the game ended, Christopoulos was met at the bench by his teammates. He had a breakout season in the OHL finishing with 49 goals and 74 points.



Here's a look at the first round of the playoffs. Windsor will face Kitchener.
