Game Set Up - Kitchener

Kitchener has its sights set on the OHL Championship and more this year and are moving aggressively to create the conditions for success. Their most recent move was a trade on Friday for Belleville's Matt Tipoff who was in the line up for Kitchener's 8-1 romp over the Frontenacs on Friday. He scored Kitchener's first goal and added an assist to impress his new team and city. Their second best PP in the OHL was good on 4 of their 10 opportunities in the game. Orleans native Jason Akeson had a hat trick in the game.

Both teams rested today in preparation for Sunday's game at the Urbandale Centre. Ottawa puts their 4-game winning streak on the line.
