From the Ottawa Sun Barre Campbell writes, 67's lay untimely egg. From the Ottawa Citizen Andy Watson writes, Colts square series with 67's. this quote by Killer says it all I guess:
From SLAM! Sports, Colts defeat 67's.

PRE-GAME INTERVIEW WITH TALBOT (TEAM 1200/AJ):
We still want to come out hard and get game two. Do the same thing as last game.
(On the win) It was huge for us. We wanted to come out hard and take it to them and hopefully it put them back on their heels for game two.
(On his great game) I just wanted to keep it simple in game one. I had a couple of lucky chances to get around their D.
(On game two) There is definitely some key guys for their face-offs. We want to get as many draws as we can. We want to get as many pucks to the net and shooting from everywhere.
