Game Set Up - Kingston

In a rare Saturday afternoon home game, the Ottawa 67's will start a home-and-home series with divisional rivals Kingston Frontenac.

The Fronts will be coming in on a high after beating the Eastern Conference leading Barrie Colts at the K-Rock Centre. The Kingston Frontenac team was pretty much intact since they had not been active on the trade front on Friday. The Colts on the other hand were without the players they had traded to Niagara (Strome (14 pts in 34 games) and Gronvaldt (6 pts in 24 games)) nor did they have the players they traded for (Pietrangelo, DeSousa and Simila). Take a look at the game sheet from last night. Looks like Kingston was able to take advantage of a team that was seriously discombobulated in the immediate aftermath of the trade.

The Barrie loss really doesn't threaten their dominance in the conference but the Kingston win helps the Fronts keep up the pace with the 67's. There are important divisional points on the line today and tomorrow.
