Friday, March 18:
Oshawa Generals (38-17-4-6) vs Ottawa 67's (42-19-3-2)
67's are first in the East Division while the Generals are just three points behind. Great test for both teams, and Oshawa still has a slight chance of taking over the 67's spot with a game in hand.
Kitchener Rangers (38-19-4-5) vs Plymouth Whalers (35-25-2-4)
Rangers are currently third in the Western Conference while the Whalers are sixth, meaning, if the playoffs started tomorrow, these two teams would be facing each other in the first round. A big game and another good test for both clubs.
Saturday, March 19:
Belleville Bulls (20-42-0-4) vs Sudbury Wolves (27-34-2-2)
Bulls are still fighting for the 8th seed with Peterborough, while the Wolves are currently in the seventh place spot, but could still catch Brampton for sixth should they win all their remaining games, and Brampton loose all of theirs. Important game for both teams, but more important for Belleville.
Peterborough Petes (19-44-1-2) vs Barrie Colts (15-47-2-2)
The Colts could play the season-enders here against Peterborough, who must win the game if they want to continue to press for the eight seed in the Eastern Conference. Although both Peterborough and Belleville have games Sunday as well, these Saturday evening games will be their most important.
Owen Sound Attack (44-17-1-4) vs London Knights (32-38-4-1)
The Attack have clinched first in the Western Conference while the Knights currently sit in eighth place, meaning these two will likely be first round playoff opponents. However, with London having a game at hand and being just four points behind the seventh place Guelph Storm, the Knights could still squeeze into the seventh place spot with a successful weekend.
Sunday, March 20:
Ottawa 67's (42-19-3-2) vs Sudbury Wolves (27-34-2-2)
As of today, these two clubs are matched up as first round playoff opponents. The Wolves are a dangerous team despite their deceiving record, but Ottawa has the only season series lead with a 4-2 win in September. It's been a while since these two teams have faced each other, so this game is up for grabs.
