The Whalers beat the Belleville Bulls on Saturday, but Kitchener also pulled out the win over the Ice Dogs. The win lowers the amount of points needed down to  34. What needs to continue to happen…

  • The Whalers win.
  • Kitchener  and Sarnia loses.

All three teams play on Friday, but Kitchener play the Guelph Storm tonight. So we have four games to look at going into Friday.

  • Guelph (38-9-2-1 | 79 points | 3rd place in the West) at Kitchener (17-30-1-1 | 36 points | 9th place in the West)
    • Season Record: The Storm have had the Rangers’ number this season winning all five meetings so far. Guelph has also shutout the Rangers two times this season.
  • Oshawa (32-15-0-4 | 68 points | 1st place in the East) at Kitchener (17-30-1-1 | 36 points | 9th place in the West)
    • Season Record: Kitchener beat the Generals 5-3 back on September 29th.
  • Sarnia (15-30-1-5 | 36 points | 10th place in the West) at Ottawa (17-28-1-3 | 38 points | 9th place in the East)
    • Season Record: This is the meeting between these two teams.
  • Sault Ste. Marie (35-12-1-4 | 75 points | 2nd place in the West) at Plymouth (18-27-0-5 | 41 points | 8th place in the West)
    • Season Record: The Soo hold a 3-0-0-1 lead in the season series against these two teams.

There are a lot of scenarios that can happen with these four games, too many to list really. What I can tell you is that best case scenario, the Whalers will be down to needing 28 points to clinch. Worst case is that we are stuck at 34 points.

 

I cannot stress this enough, the Whalers are in the drivers seat in this situation. They cannot control the games that Kitchener and Sarnia are playing this weekend and they have the sights set on overtaking the Whalers in the standings. Like the Seahawks did in the Super Bowl this past weekend, you don’t let up.
