Tonight the Barrie Colts host the Mississauga Steelheads for the third meeting of six this season. Both teams have won a game a piece in the season series with Barrie winning the first meeting November, 1st 6-0 while Mississauga won the second game 6-3 on December, 6th. If Mississauga is able to pull off the win tonight they will jump the Colts in the standings for the first place spot in the Central Division. It should be noted that the Steelheads do have 4 games in hand.
|So we gonna get our lead back if we need to!|
Mississauga comes into Barrie riding a 2 game win streak and a 5-3-1-1 record over the last 10 games. With wins over Owen Sound and a shutout over Ottawa this past weekend the trout hope to capture the top spot over Barrie in the Central even though it seemingly wouldn't be a long term spot with the top spot being so tight.With Blackwood back the Colts now have three goalies. Hawerchuk plans to make a decision on who stays & backs up Blackwood in next week.— Gene Pereira (@GenePereira1) January 5, 2016
|MAYBE TIGHTER THAN THIS!!|
Players to Watch: As mentioned, Blackwood is expected to get the start tonight so he is a must watch. Also, Kevin Labanc was named Player of the Week last week. In 4 GP he totaled 7 goals and 6 assists with +11.
