Though Ottawa eventually fell to Oshawa 2-1 in overtime, they collected an important point and paired with the IceDogs 4-0 loss to the Frontenacs, the Barber Poles slide into sixth in the Eastern Conference.
They Mississauga Steelheads defeated the Sudbury Wolves on Sunday as well, shuffling up the standings from fourth to seventh in the OHL’s East. The North Bay Battalion look to have locked down third as they sit six points up on the now fourth place Steelheads.
Peterborough is now tied with Mississauga, as both teams possess 62 points, though the Fish hold the advantage with two more regulation victories. Oshawa also jumped back into the final playoff spot, with their W over the 67’s.
Ottawa trails the season series versus Niagara 2-1 and are looking to even it up in their fourth and final meeting this year. When they last met, the IceDogs downed the 67’s by a score of 4-1. 12 different Dogs recorded a point in the victory, including forward Christopher Paquette, who scored the game winner.
Niagara has dropped their last four in a row, while being outscored 13-5, and is hoping snap that streak tonight at TD Place. This losing skid has come at a terrible time for the Dogs, as Ottawa, Peterborough, Mississauga, and North Bay have all posted above .500 record’s over their last 10 games.
