Playoff Preview: IceDogs at Ottawa | Game 4

Ottawa is coming off a 4-2 win, their first of the postseason, over the IceDogs on Easter Monday. The Arena at TD Place was rocking with over 4,500 rabid 67’s fans in the building cheering on the boys. The atmosphere was incendiary and no doubt helped the team to victory.
Unfortunately, Monday’s win was not without cost, as longtime 67’s defenceman Nevin Guy left the contest with a broken wrist and will miss the rest of the playoffs. This is a huge loss to not only the team, but for Guy as well, as his OHL career comes to an end in a disappointing fashion. Look for William Brown or Hudson Wilson to take his spot in the lineup tonight.
Defeating Nedeljkovic was one of the brighter takeaways from Monday’s game. Before that, the IceDogs netminder had beaten the 67’s 10 straight times. Ottawa was eventually going to turn the tide, as they scored 7 goals in the first two games.
In the other net, Leo Lazarev was spectacular. The IceDogs outshot Ottawa all game long and finished the game up almost doubling the 67’s output, 28-16. Lazarev turned away eight shots in the third, at least half of which were point blank chances late in the final frame.
Upfront Nathan Todd continues to lead the way for the Barber Poles. The overage centre now has eight points in three playoff games this postseason and is still riding a nine-game point streak. GM/head coach Jeff Brown commended Todd on his play with an amazing compliment after the game, stating “Some guys just play hockey and others ARE hockey players. Todd is a hockey player.”
