Ottawa kicks off February with a Friday night match-up against the bottom dwelling Bulldogs at 7 p.m. Sweet seats are available by clicking here, calling 613-232-6767 x1, or in person at the TD Place Box Office.
An arduous month of January that saw the 67’s play 13 games, including a trio of three-games-in-three-nights, is finally in the rearview mirror. Multiple injuries and a major trade may have slowed some teams, but Ottawa showed resilience and ended the month 7-6.
It seems as though the Barber Poles will get some energy back in their lineup tonight. Forward Travis Barron was in full gear at yesterday’s practice and may suit up for the 67’s versus Hamilton.
With only 19 games left in the OHL season, Ottawa looks to be assured a post-season spot. They currently sit two points back of Peterborough for second place in the East Division. If the 67’s can scold the Bulldogs tonight, they’ll move into a tie with the Petes before they face off against one another tomorrow night.
Those Petes defeated Hamilton 4-1 last night in Peterborough. Forward Trent Fox scored the loan goal for the Dogs, his team-leading 21st of the season. Hamilton’s backup goalie Kaden Fulcher was handed the loss, as he allowed four goals on 35 shots.
With the Bulldogs currently sitting in the basement of the East Division, they are in a battle with the Oshawa Generals for the final playoff spot in the OHL’s Eastern Conference. In all sincerity, it seems neither club would mind missing the cut and receiving a higher pick in this summer’s Priority Selection.
With that being said though, look for the Dogs to keep barking tonight, as many young players on their roster will be battling for next season’s ice time.
