OHL Finals Pre-Game 5 News And Notes

From the Ottawa Sun Barre Campbell writes, Leaving Labatt dry not option. Colbert:

It's going to be wild," said Ottawa captain Will Colbert.

"But we've put ourselves in this position and there's no reason why we can't get ourselves out of it.

"It's not going to be easy, but it's doable," he said. "We've got a lot of talent on this team and we've got to put it to use. If we can do that, we'll see what happens."

And a whole lot of arts from the London Free Press:

Morris Dalla Costa writes, Ottawa praying for a miracle.

Jim Kernaghan writes, Success starts in Hunter's head. Nice words about the 67s:

To do it, they'll have to subdue a team that isn't short on work ethic tonight. Hunter expects the 67's to come out as though shot from the barrel of a cannon.

Work ethic.

Jim Cressman writes, Hurtling toward history. Snippet:

The players want to wrap it up on home ice for a couple of reasons -- the chance for some rest before opening the Cup a week tonight against Sidney Crosby and the Rimouski Oceanic, and a chance to do it in front of the home crowd.

"It sucked losing Game 2, but look at it in a positive way," Schremp said of last Sunday's setback. "It gave us an opportunity to win at home."

And Kathy Rumleski writes, Saturday Knights Fever!. The city is absolutely pumped . . . and green.
