The Ottawa 67’s and Les Gatineau Olympiques are playing in the Battle of the Ottawa River this weekend for bragging rights as the region’s top team and for the Alexandra Cup.
But it’s only a two game series so how are we going to determine the winner? Easy Peasy. Here’s how it breaks down:
The team with the most points wins (two for a win, one for an OT loss) so if a team wins both games or wins one and loses in overtime they will be awarded the trophy. Where things get tricky is if both teams get the same amount of points.
If it is tied after two games, the team with the most amount of goals wins. Ex: Team A wins Game One 7-3, Team B wins Game Two 3-1. Team A has 8 goals, Team B has 6 goals. Therefore, Team A wins the Alexandra Cup.
If both teams score the same amount of goals, it will then fall to which team scored more goals on the road. Ex: If Team A wins 1-0 at home then loses 2-1 on the road then each team would have scored two goals each. But Team A has a road goal and Team B does not, therefore Team A will be awarded the Alexandra Cup.
