March 15 2013 Ontario Hockey League Game Day Previews
Feeling kinda inspired to do some rhyming.
Here goes nothing - hope you get my timing.
Some late season poetry which ma make things go right,
Hope I get more than 50% on this second to last night.
Peterborough at Kingston
The Petes are almost in the show just 2 more games to play
Never thought they’d hear the words ‘you made the playoffs today’.
These two teams are tied in points – each with 57.
Comeback team of the year – might feel like second heaven.
My prediction Peterborough 4 Kingston 2
Owen Sound at Sarnia
The Attack pushed around the Spits last night 6 to 0
Catennaci had 2 goals, but there really wasn’t a hero.
Binner stopped 28 for his seventh SO of the season
Depth from top to bottom keeps them at #3 – yep that’s the reason.
The Sting are easily in their spot – the cosy seventh place
Trailing the Greyhounds by a single point – it’s still a close race.
Last night Sarault gathered 2 assists for the OHL point lead
Quiet night from his teammate – goal scoring leader named Reid.
My prediction Owen Sound 5 Sarnia 4
Kitchener at Saginaw
The Rangers are stuck in the standings, they can do no better than fourth
After this game they will travel and visit the Greyhounds in the north.
Seems to me they have been stuck in the middle of the pack,
Guelph is still hungry as they are only 4 points back.
Sarnia lost last night to Saginaw in the dreaded OT
Jason Shaw with the winner, was a great goal to see.
The Spirit are stuck in the #8 place
They held off the Spits who gave them a little race.
My prediction Kitchener 3 Saginaw 1
Barrie at Brampton
The Colts are gunning for the #1 spot
Seven wins in a row – it’s the right time to be hot.
Scheifele has been on fire – 5 points in his last game
NHL Bruins sign Camara, he should burn bright like a flame
Last night Brampton came to St. Catharines and left with a win,
Don’t think these teams will see each other this year again.
Battalion erupted for three goals in the third.
5 goals total – that amount for Brampton is absurd.
My prediction Barrie 4 Brampton 1
Erie at Guelph
Otters looking to finish things the way they should
Only one win in their last 10 doesn’t look good.
Lots of potential and many Connors,
Williams in net? Nope, probably Dansk will get the honours.
Fan Appreciation night, with some great prizes
They are getting weary, their grumbling rises.
Will be better next year – with June’s early pick
Hopefully the foundation laid this year will stick.
The Storm are in fifth chasing the Rangers
After these 2 games, the players won’t be strangers.
Missing defender to injury – a guy named Finn
Big question for the team is how long can they win?
My prediction Guelph 4 Erie 2
Belleville at Mississauga
Bulls are atop the league’s Eastern half
Can they stay afloat and make it last?
This month the Bulls score a little more than three
Subban with no shutouts this month I see
Missy struggles to put pucks in the net
Really need some spark from Riley Brace the vet.
Today ‘we’re in seventh’ you might hear the Steelheads shout
Tomorrow maybe more sullen – ‘we’re in danger of being out’
My prediction Belleville 3 Mississauga 0
Oshawa at Ottawa
The Generals will demonstrate why they are to be feared
They have lots of power up front and behind – 67’s should be scared.
Ottawa’s last game vs. Brampton - they were outshot 55-10
Such a disparity between teams I can’t remember when.
Tonight’s game between teams at opposite ends of the rack,
Putting Ottawa in the ‘W’ column will get you called a quack.
My prediction Oshawa 5 Ottawa 0
Niagara at Sudbury
Dogs lost last night to the Battalion 5-2 at the ‘Jack’
Tought to win when you need better play from the back.
Strome was out with a bruised bone in his lower leg,
Huge ‘playoff game’ here with the Wolves just 3 ahead.
My prediction Niagara 2 Sudbury 3(OT)
