Mississauga Game Set-Up

The Eastern Conference leading Mississauga St. Michael Majors visit the Urbandale Centre riding a 4-game winning streak. The Ottawa 67s are at home after a tough weekend trip where they managed to get 2 out of 6 points against tough opposition. It's worth mentioning that they were without Tyler Toffoli and got their win in the third game of the weekend.

As I mentioned in the weekend wrap-up, the numbers on their specialty teams were much better; no PPGs allowed and they managed a few PPG's of their own.

The key to St. Mike's success is the very low goals against after 12 games (24 goals allowed). Goalie Chris Carozzi is first in the league in both GAA (1.76) and Save % (.937) in the 8 games he's played. Their backup, JP Anderson ranks 4th and 14th respectively in both categories. Goaltending really makes a big difference.
