Game Set Up - Peterborough

Heading into the final weekend before the Christmas break, the Ottawa 67's have another home-and-home series with the Peterborough Petes before finishing on Sunday in Oshawa.

Friday will be the 4th time these two teams meet this year with Ottawa having won all three previous matches.

The Petes come to the Rona Centre having beaten the Brampton Battalion 4 - 2 at home where Matt Puempel had 2 goals and an assist (not sure these are reflected in his stats below). Former Frontenac Alan Quine had one of the other Peterborough goals. Both these players enjoy a decent record against the 67's with Quine having scored 2 goals and an assist this year, Puempel has 2 goals and Kalle Ekelund with 3 assists against the 67's this year. With Ryan Spooner being traded to Kingston, these are the three most successful Peterborough players against Ottawa.

For their part, the RST line has been particularly damaging to the Petes with Ryan (Martindale) scoring 4 goals and 3 assists, Shane with 1 goal and 6 assists and Tyler (Toffoli) having scored 5 goals and 3 assists for a total of 22 points.

The big news going into the weekend is that the Ottawa 67's have finally cracked the CHL top 10 list this week - weighing in as the 9th best CHL team in the country. Congratulations team - you have certainly worked hard for this recognition.
