GAME DAY PREVIEW: Sudbury Wolves @ Ottawa 67’s

GAME DAY PREVIEW:  Sudbury Wolves @ Ottawa 67’s

Radio: Team 1200 (Ottawa), 95.5 KFM (Sudbury).
TV: Rogers 22 (Ottawa)

It’s a first round preview this afternoon at the RONA Centre.  The host, Ottawa 67’s are coming off a high after edging the Oshawa Generals by a score of 4-3 in regulation to clinch the Eastern Division title for the second straight year.  Petr Mrazek made his return to the lineup after being sidelined with a groin injury. He turned aside 29 of 32 shots while Dalton Smith had a goal and added 2 assists.

The Sudbury Wolves roll into town off a 6-3 victory over the Belleville Bulls.  Michael Sgarbossa had a goal and 2 assists to lead the way.  Jacob Riley had a busy night stopping 35 of 38 shots fired his way.

Sudbury will face Ottawa for on the 2nd (and final time) of the regular season.  The last time these two teams met was all the way back on September 25th in Sudbury where the 67’s skated to a 4-2 win.  Steven Janes had pair of goals while Cody Lindsay and Tyler Toffoli both added a goal and an assist.  The teams were much different that early in the season, so there is no guaranteeing anything.  Jake Cardwell makes his first return to face his former team since being traded to the 67’s on November 12th.  Ryan Hanes also makes his first return to Ottawa after being the other half of that trade.
