Ottawa 67s Weekly Preview Oct. 29

Ottawa 67s (6-8-0)

If the 67s can play half as well as they did against the Peterborough Petes last week against the Kingston Frontenacs and the Petes (again!) this week, they just may get back to .500.

Tuesday VS Kingston Frontenacs (8-3-3)

This will be the second time these teams have met this season. The 67s will be looking for a different outcome this time around. They lost 7-4 to the Frontenacs on October 4th in Kingston. The Frontenacs have a very good record so far this season, but they have actually lost five games in a row. In their past five games they are 0-3-2. No better time for the 67s to play these guys than while they’re in their first slump of the season. And coming off of an 8-1 win last week, the 67s’ confidence has gotten a major boost. Kingston’s top line has been very good so far, with Henri Ikonen scoring 21 points in 12 games, and Sam Bennett scoring 20 in 13.

Saturday @ Peterborough Petes (7-6-1)

This will be the third game between these two team, the 67s having won both of the previous two by a combined score of 11-3 (which sounds really good until you realize it’s only because they won 8-1 in their last game). The Petes aren’t in a slump right now, but why not try and score 8 goals on them again? If the 67s can beat the Frontenacs, it will give them some great momentum going into this game. Nobody on the Petes has had an incredible season so far, but their top line of Nick Ritchie, Eric Cornel and Stephen Nosad have all been around the point per game mark.
