Sault Ste Marie at Owen Sound
The Greyhounds are rolling with a 5 game win streak. They are #2 in the Western Conference, trailing Erie by 7 points. They are tied with Barrie for the lowest number of goals scored against them.
The Attack needed a powerplay goal from a rookie in the third period to squeak by the last place Kitchener Rangers on home ice last night. Owen Sound has fallen to #7 since the trade deadline. They do have some cushion now as the Plymouth Whalers (#8) are behind by 11 points).

Sarnia at Oshawa
The Sting have lost 2 in a row and only have points in 4 of their last 10 games. Despite being outshot 48-27 at Peterborough last night, the Sting were only a goal down until the last 5 minutes of regulation. Final score was 7-4 in favour of the Petes. Sarnia is 4 points away from the #8 spot in the Western Conference.
Oshawa might be waking up – they have won 2 in a row and have improved their record to 4-4-0-2 in their past 10 contests. Their lead in atop the Eastern Conference has slipped to only 3 points over the surging Sudbury Wolves.

Sudbury at Windsor
The Wolves conclude their western road swing with a stop in Ontario. They won 1-0 game at Plymouth on Friday night and then lost 4-3 last night at Saginaw They are in second place in the Eastern Conference and have points in 8 of their past 10 games.
Windsor wins !! Reporters haven’t said that in awhile. They unloaded on Plymouth last night 6-2 and looking for some more positive results after a lengthy dry spell. Their record in their past 10 is 4-5-1-2.

Kingston at Guelph
The Fronts can’t get home soon enough. They were shelled on Thursday night by the Icedogs 6-3 and then were dumped by Erie by the same 6-3 score. Kingston was leading 2-0 in the first period at Erie but lost their grip. They continue to cling to third place in the East – 2 pts ahead of North Bay.
Guelph is on a roll – 5 wins in a row and 9 wins in their past 10 games. Last night they squeaked by the #1 Otters (that still sounds weird) 1-0. If the Fronts don’t get some goaltending, the score could easily get out of hand.
