OHL Round 2 – Playoff Update

Posted By Wes Ranger On Apr 6 2011 @ 7:27 pm In OHL | No Comments

Mississauga (#1) vs. Sudbury (#7)

Majors Bullet Notes: Allowed only a single goal in a four game series wash of the Belleville Bulls – - -  Maxim Kitsyn led the team with 3 goals in those four playoff games – - – GoaltenderJ.P. Anderson has a 0.25 GAA – - – Finished their first round series on March. 29 and have been resting since – - – Suffocating defense for the Bulls the Wolves to play against

Wolves Bullet Notes:  Stole Game 1 in Ottawa and then had the good fortune to play two home games in Sudbury and won both to take a 3-o series lead, and won the clinching game 4 in Ottawa to sweep the 67′s  – - – Michael Sgarbossa lit up the 67′s for 12 points (4g, 8a) and rookie Joshua Leivo surprised with 10 points (4g, 6a) – - – Marcus Foligno was disappointing on the scoresheet with no points (only a 4 game series, but still…) and finished at -2 as well – - – Josh McFadden had 4 goals from defense, two of them on the powerplay – - – This could be another solid matchup for the Wolves, and hard working, tight defensive team against their hard forechecking forwards and strong defensemen

Niagara (#3) vs. Oshawa (#4)

IceDogs Bullet Notes : Predictably, the offense was spread around as eleven different players managed to score during the four game sweep of Brampton – - – Darren Archibald fired in 5 goals and 8 points for the series – - – Jesse Graham (16 yrs old) and Dougie Hamilton (17 yrs old)  combined for 11 points from defense – - – The same defensive pair was a combined +14 – - – entire team played a complete game in the first round, Oshawa’s deep scoring will test their younger Dmen – - – Visentin is scary good and will frustrate any oddman rushes by the Generals team this round

Generals Bullet Notes: Nine different players averaged a point per game in the series win (4-1) against Kingston – - – Christian Thomas leads the playoffs in scoring with 13 points (5g, 8a) and Lucas Lessio scored 5 goals on the second line – - – Boone Jenner, Niklas Jensen, and Alain Berger all had 4 goals – - -A couple injury scares with Scott Valentine and Peter DiSalvo taking some time off during the series to heal – - – A much bigger challenge in each zone for the Generals, the defense will need to contain the fast opposing forwards – - – Di Salvo’s experience making the big save will push the rest of the team
