Kitchener Rangers lose Game 4 to the London Knights at the Aud

It was a disappointing night for Kitchener Rangers fans at the Aud.

The team was hoping to even up their OHL playoff series on Tuesday, but it was a shutout with the London Knights taking Game 4 by a score of 5-0.

"We're obviously not feeling good," said Rangers head coach Mike McKenzie. "We're down and out, but part of playoffs is managing the highs and lows, and tonight's obviously an extreme low for us.

"All areas of our game I thought lacked a little bit of pop and energy, so we need to find a way to go back to how we played on Sunday."

The Knights took the first two matches in the best-of-seven series, but Kitchener rallied in Game 3 with an impressive 6-1 victory.

Tuesday’s game was almost sold out with only standing room tickets available.

"I came back from Ottawa to watch this," said fan Curtis Hugo. "It's always goosebumps everytime I come to The Aud, but it's an unfortunately end result."

The two teams will head to London next for Game 5 on Thursday.

"We'll just regroup tomorrow," said McKenzie. "We'll probably have a short little practice and watch some video and go over some things we can change and be better and then head to London Thursday."

But it didn't stay that way for long.

The Rangers were unable to stage a comeback.

Final score was 5-0 for the Knights.
