Well it wasn't pretty last night in Niagara.
At least goalie John Gibson continues to deliver in every game - save one, 6-2 loss in Ottawa - this season.
Inconsistent play isn't restricted to the Rangers. Rivals the London Knights are also going through a funk of their own.
Lots of news making the rounds last night. Rumours that Brampton may be leaving town won't die. And how about that CHLPA thing? Georges Laraque steps down as head of the proposed union while some of its other talking heads try to explain how they lied about who they were while giving interviews.
As for tonight, Windsor is coming in off a 6-3 win over the Knights Thursday at home.
No luck for Rangers' forward Matia Marcantuoni. The winger is out indefinitely with a chip fracture in his finger. He sustained the injury last night while blocking a shot.
Kitchener lines for tonight:
Ben Thomson-Domenic Alberga-Tobias Rieder
Matt Puempel-Radek Faksa-Eric Ming
Brent Pedersen-Josh Sterk-Justin Bailey
Darby Llewellyn-Curtis Meighan-Nick Czinder
Ryan Murphy-Ben Fanelli
Jared Gilbert-Evan McEneny
Max Iafrate-Cory Genovese
Franky Palazzese starts in goal.
Kerby Rychel-Brady Vail-Josh Ho-Sang
Ben Johnston-Mike Clarke-Derek Schoenmakers
Emerson Clark-Jordan Maletta-Sam Studnicka
Ryan Verbeek-Ty Bilcke
Saverio Posa-Nick Ebert
Pat Sieloff-Brandon Devlin
Pat Sanvido-Adam Bateman
Jordan DeKort gets the start.
- No love for Nick Czinder from his former club - the Windsor Spitfires. The overage winger lost a fight to Emerson Clark and was rocked twice into the boards. He left after the first period and did not return. Czinder had stitches over his right eye but otherwise looked okay. He'll no doubt be doing the concussion test soon.
- The Rangers got some big contributions from some players who were long overdue - Brent Pedersen scores twice after going goalless in 12 games, Domenic Alberga pots his first goal and collects his first point - and first by any overager - this season.
- And let's not forget goalie Franky Palazzese who, despite not getting a win before tonight, had some of the best numbers in the crease in the OHL. His GAA is 1.99. Enough said.
- Kitchener's third line of Pedersen, Josh Sterk and Justin Bailey had its best night with seven combined points. That's the future folks, enjoy it.
- Can't believe Ben Thomson didn't get a fighting penalty late in the game against John Bowen. Pretty lucky on that one.
- The o-for-12 power play streak was broken tonight on Brent Pedersen's first.
