Ottawa, ON • Canada • 39 Years Old • Male
Welcome to Saturday afternoons LIVE Game Blog versus the Kingston Frontenacs!

Pre-game Notes:

- This is the fifth meeting between the clubs this year. Ottawa won 9 - 0 last time.
- Keep your eye on Ryan Spooner & Nathan Moon for the Frontenacs.
- The 67′s are 5-5-0-0 in their last 10 games. That's a little better!
- Tyler Toffoli leads the OHL in scoring, Shane Prince is only 7 points behind.

Keys to the game for Ottawa:

- Don’t take to many penalties. The Frontenacs are the 10th ranked PP in the league @ 20.8%
- The penalty kill seems to be getting better. We are ranked 2nd overall in the PK @ 83.0%
- Be aggressive on the forecheck and in the neutral zone.
- Make smart passes when trying to either gain the 0-zone and break out of the d-zone.
- Spread the offense around. The top line can’t win them all.
