Playoff Series Setup - Round 2 v Mississauga

There's only one game left to play in the first round: Kingston and Brampton play game 7 tonight to determine who gets the privilege of taking on the Barrie Colts.

Meanwhile, the other Eastern Conference bracket was finalized on Sunday with Ottawas 5-1 win over the Niagara IceDogs.

The St. Mikes Majors won all four games against the 67's this season including a couple of blow-out shut-outs. Three of the four games were played in the span of about a month (December 6 - January 3) and all the games were played before the trade deadline, before Shane Prince was acquired and before Corey Cowick returned to the lineup. Mississauga was quiet leading up to and at the trade deadline.

The difference in this series will likely be the D and goalkeeping. The St. Mike's goalies see less rubber and keep more pucks out of their nets than the 67's goalies.

Here are a bunch of head to head stats for your own review - you be the armchair coach.
