It’s Friday folks! In need of a little pick me up today so I thought that I’d do today’s abbreviated previews in the form of an improv game called Questions only.  Thanks to @ColinMochrie for the inspiration.  In light of events around the world, these won’t have as much grit/meat as previous posts – we’ll get on the horse a bit better for tomorrow’s action.

Mississauga at Kingston

Will newly acquired Hottot give the Steelheads a shot in the arm, or a kick in the pants?

Can Kingston finish the season on a winning streak (only 4 wins in last 10 games)?

 My prediction Mississauga 3 Kingston 2

Guelph at Sarnia

Can the Storm continue their play and remain in the CHL honour roll this week (good thing none are at WJC)?

Sarnia is 3 points ahead of Plymouth for 2nd place in the West - can they extend their lead this weekend?

 My prediction Guelph 3 Sarnia 4 (OT)

Saginaw at Sault Ste  Marie

Both teams are mired in the bottom of the standings with 30and 32 points respectively. Will this be a dog
fight (greyhounds reference here), or a lightly spirited game?

My prediction Saginaw 3 Sault Ste Marie 5

Erie at Kitchener

Can the Otters string together two wins in a row?

Can Kitchener continue to play solid offensive hockey while many of their top producers are injured or at Junior Camps? (Gibson's last game this calendar year)

 My prediction Erie 2 Kitchener 3

 

Owen Sound at London

Can the Attack get it together without their #1 goalie and without their Coach who was recently suspended?

Does London have enough competent  D-men to keep the puck out of their own end?

(Teddy Bear Toss tonight)

My prediction Owen Sound 4 London 2

 

Peterborough at Ottawa

Can Peterborough get back in the W column (only 3 times in past 10)?

Will recently the recently cut players from Team Canada go on a bit of a tear before Christmas?

 My prediction Peterborough 2 Ottawa 5

 

Belleville at Oshawa

Can the Bulls survive without Subban and extend their 4 game winning streak?

Where will the Generals get their scoring from (Jenner travelling to Russia)?

(teddy bear toss tonight)

 My prediction Belleville 4 Oshawa 3 (OT)

 

Plymouth at Sudbury

What will it take to get the Whalers to snap out of their 5 game winless in December streak? (let’s send Wilson back from the WJC to help!)

Frank Corrado returns from the WJC as well – how long will he remain with the Wolves (trade rumblings)?

 My prediction Plymouth 2 Sudbury 4
