Set up for Oshawa

Return engagement after Ottawa's Corey Cowick won the game against his former team in the shoot-out last Sunday. Ottawa had a two-goal lead in the third period but allowed TWO short-handed goals and the game was tied. Corey was the only player to score in the shoot-out as Chris Perugini kept the puck out of the net for all three Oshawa shooters. It was good to see Corey get the winner.

Oshawa is playing Peterborough tonight so no head-to-head stats. If Oshawa wins (leading by 2 as I write this), they will be just one point behind Ottawa and Niagara and the middle of the pack will get tighter.

This will be the first game without Michael Latta and the first game for newcomers Anthony Nigro and Travis Gibbons (wearing numbers 21 and 55 respectively). Oshawa will be without Taylor Carnavale who was traded to Barrie earlier this week.

I've heard that it will be a sell-out crowd on hand. In addition to great hockey, we will be entertained by the ZOOperstars.

See you tomorrow night and don't forget to get your teddy bears for the teddy bear toss on Saturday.

Update: The Oshawa Generals retired Bobby Orr's number last night and went on to beat the Petes 5 - 1. Ottawa is not in 4th place in the conference, 2 points behind Niagara (who won last night) and one point ahead of Oshawa.
