The Kitchener Rangers sure need it. The team lost 5-2 last night and is in a hole, down 3-0 to London.
Yes, a monumental task lies ahead. Not only do the Rangers have to rally and win four straight games, they have to do it against the OHL's top rated team.
If you're looking for recent precedent, it's not out there. The best is 2005 when Kitchener fell behind 0-2 to Erie before winning four straight to take the series.
Oh, and this should make fans feel better - London sniper Greg McKegg (nine points, 10 playoff games) is close to returning. The forward has missed the entire series with an upper body injury and could be back for Friday's game, if the series lasts that long.
And the length of the west final will depend on what the Rangers do tonight at the Aud. Game time is 7 p.m.
