Tavares Eliminated

Windsor beat London 4-3 in overtime tonight, winning the series 4 games to 1, and ending John Tavares' season (and likely his junior career).  Tavares had a goal and an assist, giving him 10-11-21 in 14 playoff games this spring.  With the win, Windsor captures the Wayne Gretzky Trophy as the OHL's Western Division Champion.

Eric Wellwood (Kyle's younger brother) had the clinching goal (his 9th of the post-season) in a series in which every game went to overtime.  Wellwood is eligible for the 2009 draft
Windsor, who had the best record in the OHL in the regular season, will face either Belleville or Brampton (Duchesne's team) in the OHL Finals.

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982.
