#9 UC @ #10 UMan - UMan wins both games leaving UC standing still in 4th

Possible Upsets/Games to Watch
(Sat) #6 ACD at SFX (with only one game this weekend for the AUS teams - a must win for X or they could end up being caught by STU next term) Actually two games for X (my mistake) and X got 3 of 4 points - 1 at home and 2 on the road. They extended their lead on STU to 6pts for the last playoff spot.
(Sat)#2 McG at Nipissing (only game for each team this weekend). A win for Nipissing and a probable win for UQTR over RMC could result in a 3-way tie for 1st in OUA-East McGill has two games in-hand. Actually two games for McG last weekend (missed that as well) and they won both. They have a 2pt lead on UQTR (now #10)
(Sat/Sun) #5 ALB at Regina. Regina is at home and could get the split. Regina made it interesting in the second game, but lost in overtime. It's tight in the CW with the top four teams within 4 pts. 4th place CAL has it tough this week as it's their bye-week
The UNB/STU game could have been a big upset, but the VReds stormed back from 0-3, after two periods, to win 5-3 thanks to 3 straight shorties to start the 3rd period.

X's win over ACD, in ACD, is a bit of an upset. Could X be back on track?

UPEI did UNB a favour and took a game from UdeM in Moncton and X
's win over ACD keeps them (ACD) 2pts behind instead of a tie for first.

CW is too close to call. Need to see some weekends with top teams going head-2-head.

OUA-East and West are settling in with 3-4 top teams each, but no one is a run-away.

Head-2-Head this week

#3 ALB @ #9 Man - not a must win, but a big series for MAN at home as they could take over 1st if they win both games. A likely series sweep from USK over Regina could see both teams ahead of ALB.

Possible Upsets/Games to Watch
#15 SMU at #7 ACD - a win for SMU could get them into a T2 with Acadai (depending on UdeM/UPEI
#5 UdeM at #12 UPEI - a win for UPEI could get them into a T3 with UdeM
#10 UQTR at Nipissing - Nipissing needs to win this (at home) to make-up some distance as McG will certainly win over RMC and hope for a CON win over OTT.
#13 WAT at #4 UWO - a win for the visitors would tighten the standings. UWO will likely get 2pts in their last game on Sat. vs Guelph
