Seth Griffith kept the London Knights rolling by staying hot himself. Griffith scored twice, including the winner 3:13 into overtime, as the London Knights edged the visiting Kingston Frontenacs 6-5 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League action. Griffith now has five game-winning goals and 27 goals and 58 points in 36 games, which is good for third in OHL scoring. The victory extends Londons franchise-best win streak to 21 games, which is just four shy of the OHL record set by the 1983-84 Kitchener Rangers. Ryan Rupert also scored twice for the Knights (29-5-2), who improved to 15-3-2 on home ice, while Chris Tierney had a goal and two assists. Rupert, a 2012 selection of the Toronto Maple Leafs, has three goals and nine points in his last eight games while Tierney has two goals and seven points in his last five outings. Josh Anderson scored twice as Bo Horvat and Jacob Jammes each had two assists to round out Londons offence. Sam Povorozniouk had a goal and an assist for the Frontenacs (17-15-2), who have dropped back-to-back games, and Cody Alcock, Samuel Schutt, Slater Doggett and Jean Dupuy each scored once. Jake Patterson started in goal for the London but was replaced after allowing three goals on 19 shots through 23 minutes of action. Kevin Bailie stopped 7 of 9 shots in the final 42 minutes of relief to pick up his 17th victory of the season while Colin Furlong turned away 42-of-48 shots in a losing cause for Kingston. The Knights went 1 for 4 on the power play while the Frontenacs failed to score on either of their chances with the man advantage. Elsewhere in the OHL, it was: Brampton 4, Niagara 1; Sudbury 3, Mississauga 1; Barrie 4, Peterborough 1; Oshawa 4, Ottawa 3 and Sault Ste. Marie 4, Windsor 1. At London, Ont., Tierney and Rupert scored less than two minutes apart to give the Knights a 2-0 lead eight minutes into the first period, but Alcock and Povorozniouk responded for Kingston to make it 2-2 after 20 minutes of play. Dupuy gave the Frontenacs their first lead of the game at 3:23 of the second period before Anderson replied for London at 6:51. Doggett made it 4-3 Kingston heading into the third period. Schutt extended the Frontenacs lead at 8:13 of the third, however their lead quickly dissolved as Griffith scored his first of the day and Rupert added his second at 15:04 to force overtime. --- Battalion 7 IceDogs 1 At Brampton, Ont., Brandon Robinson scored three goals and added an assist and Patrik Machac had a goal and two assists as the Battalion (17-14-5) crushed Niagara (20-13-2) to move within three points of the IceDogs for second place in the Central Division. --- Wolves 3 Steelheads 1 At Mississauga, Ont., Nathan Pancel scored the winner late in the second period and Joshua Leivo had a goal and an assist as Sudbury (14-16-6) downed the Steelheads (18-12-3) to earn at least one point in its fifth straight outing. --- Colts 4 Petes 1 At Peterborough, Ont., Andreas Athanasiou, Zach Hall and Erik Bradford each had a goal and an assist and Alex Fotinos stopped 36 shots as Barrie (23-9-1) handed the Petes (8-23-4) their third loss in a row. --- Generals 4 67s 3 At Oshawa, Ont., Cole Cassels scored twice, including the winner at 14:06 of the third period, and Daniel Altshuller turned away 30-of-33 shots as the Generals (20-12-3) beat Ottawa (9-24-3) for their third straight win. --- Greyhounds 4 Spitfires 1 At Sault Ste.

The Halifax Consciousness Scanner, developed by Mindful Scientific Inc. in conjunction with scientists at the National Research Council of Canada, analyzes brainwaves to determine whether a player has suffered a concussion from a fall or hit to the head. But the device — a miniaturized form of EEG, or electroencephalogram — isnt intended only for NHL players, said Chris Barden, the companys chief operating officer. The scan could be employed at the sidelines of any high-impact sporting event, whether the players are children, amateurs or pros, as well as in hospital emergency rooms or at the site of a car crash involving a suspected head injury, he said. "Effectively, HCS acts as a kind of thermometer for brain status, so any situation where somebody might have suffered some kind of change in brain status could be a place where this would be useful," Barden said from Halifax. "And particularly, we think in the area of concussion, this could be useful because we could deploy it to the site of injury — to the hockey rink, to the soccer field, to airports — basically any public space where someone might hit their head and would like to be checked out." To measure brainwave activity, electrodes are placed on the persons head and various sounds are fed through earphones to elicit electrical activity in the brain. The scanner then analyzes brainwaves to determine whether they fall within normal parameters. Co-inventor Dr. Donald Weaver, a neurologist at Dalhousie University in Halifax, said the auditory stimuli could include a nonsense sentence such as "this pizza is much too hot to sing," which the brains of people without a concussion or other brain damage "would recognize as unusual." "And so if we had electrodes on your scalp, we would have picked up the signal where your brain went: What? That didnt make any sense," said Weaver, explaining that the device translates the brainwaves into a measure that shows how aware or conscious the person is. The scanner can be used even when someone is unconscious, including in a long-standing coma, he said. One advantage of the scanner is that it is cheat-proof, because it cant be manipulated as cognitive-behavioural tests for concussion can. "Take a pro football player, for instance," said Weaver. "They know that if they get hit on the head, theyre going to have conventional sorts of testing done on them to ascertain whether or not they have an injury. "What some of these players do before the season begins and the baselines are being done, they dont do so well," he said of cognittive tests that are used as a basis for comparison after a head injury.dddddddddddd"The baseline is already affected, so if they get hit, theyre not so far off baseline. "Whereas with this test, the brains responses to sounds like "this pizza is too hot to sing," you cant fake your brains responses to that. Youve got no way of getting around this." The company hopes to begin marketing a commercial version of the scanner to hospitals by next year, once it receives approval from Health Canada, followed by a more miniaturized device for sports teams and other public use in 2013. The company expects the latter product to retail for under $500. "Were trying to make this user-friendly, so we dont want just wave patterns ... what we are aiming for is a red-light, amber-light, green-light system," said Weaver, noting that the test can be done in five minutes on the sidelines of a game to determine if a player can safely return to play. With lights as indicators, the decision would be easy for lay people without specific medical training — for instance, coaches of kids teams, he said. "Red light, youre not going back out. Green light, you can go back out. Amber light is we need to watch you a bit longer." Larry Zarins, executive director of the Brain Injury Association of Canada, welcomed the idea of an easy-to-use brain scanner. "Certainly anything that could identify a concussion quicker is a positive step in terms of identifying a brain injury and dealing with it in the appropriate manner, " he said from Ottawa. "I see a number of uses for it," including as a tool for paramedics at the site of a traffic accident or when a person has fallen or cracked their head on the street or in their home, Zarins said. "This would be the first line of defence — or offence — in identifying a brain injury, and then it could be followed up with (other tests).
