~~Game Day Predictions for Sunday Jan 26, 2014
Special day of hockey today! Cogeco is carrying three televised games in all markets.
Belleville at Kingston
Bulls have lost 2 in a row – Fronts are looking to keep their winning ways going as they were horrible last weekend. Bulls are in last place in the league – Fronts are third for now with Barrie having the same amount of points but Kingston has one more win.

Barrie at Sudbury
This should be a good contest between 2 of the better teams in the Eastern Conference – seven points separate them in the standings. Barrie has won 4 in a row whereas the Wolves had a horrible weekend and are trying to break out of their recent 0-3-0-1 record .
Sudbury in OT
Windsor at Sarnia
The Spits have a tidy 3 game winning streak going and are comfortably in fifth place in the standings. The Sting are trying to keep themselves out of the basement – currently 1 point ahead of the Rangers for that ‘honour’.

Plymouth at Sault Ste Marie
The Whalers have lost 2 in a row and are clinging to eighth place in the standings. The Greyhounds are six points out of first place and are looking to start another winning streak after dropping their last game to the Spits.
Sault Ste Marie by 2
Erie at Oshawa
The Otters are looking to rebound after falling behind and dropping their last game – a 4-3 home ice loss to the youngsters from Niagara. Oshawa is tops in the East and put on a convincing display of their offensive abilities on Friday night’s Sportsnet game of the week (6-1 home ice win vs. Peterborough).
Erie by 2
Saginaw at Guelph
The Spirit won their last game and have wins in 7 of their past 10 games. They are in slot #6 in the conference – a full 24 points below the #1 Guelph. The Storm is really rolling with a 7 game winning streak and 9 wins in their past 10 games.
Guelph by 3
Peterborough at North Bay
The Petes look to bounce back from their lacklustre performance on Friday night at Oshawa. North Bay is interested in keeping their solid 4-0-0-1 streak going to keep pace with the Colts near the top of the Eastern Conference.
