If you don't hear from me at the game, send a search party up Hwy. 6.
As for the Rangers, they're 4-1 vs the Attack this season. But Owen Sound is one of the hottest teams in the league right now, going 7-2-1 in its last 10 games.
The OHL moving to Hamilton continues to be a big deal in Steeltown. Friend and peer Scott Radley examines the feasibility of a team coming to town today. Meanwhile, fans in Erie lament the potential loss of the Otters, who are rumoured to be on the move to the Hammer.
Arrived alive in Owen Sound. Call off the search party.
As for the playoff scenario above that I had above (now deleted), my bad. Have my OHL standings bookmarked to conference. Of course, the Rangers can't pass the Whalers as they will be division champs.
But their opponent could be Owen Sound, which would make tonight's tilt a bit of a playoff preview.
Tossed in a bonus photo from last night's 3-1 win over Peterborough. Check out the face on the girls to the left. She looks terrified.
- Trying to think of something positive to say about this one, for the Rangers. At least Franky Palazzese got some rest.
- A lot of line dancing going on tonight, as expected in a 7-1 blowout. Josh Sterk and Brent Pedersen seem to be the ones jumping around the most as coach/GM Steve Spott tries to get them going on offence.
- Forward Brandon Francisco took a hard hit midway through the game and was motionless for about 10 seconds on the ice but skated away and is not injured, according to the team.
- A good time for the club to get Guelph on Sunday, a team they've beaten six times this season.
- For what it's worth, I'd plunk Sterk, Pedersen and Meighan on a youth line and let it ride from here on out. That would mean Francisco on the second line with Randell and Crescenzi.
- Anyone seen the Faksa line lately? It's due for a big game soon.
