Steelheads made it a game by the 3rd period, but it was a frustrating game to watch especially in the first when the top line is -4 (-2 on one shift).
With the Steelheads, if you get goaltending, they will go far, if not, then they get humiliated. Example, Guelph 2 games in a row and OS last week. Last night they were down 4-0 by end of first period because of shoddy goaltending and exposed Dmen.
Their forwards can score, but they will not get into 7-6 shootouts. They prefer 1 goal wins, and low scoring affairs.
It seems like the East is up in the air, but the West has the superior teams, London, Plymouth, OS, etc...
Steelheads have to secure that top line made up of an OA forward and two veteran forward players that will come from sellers at trade time.
As for Welsh, he seemed comfortable out there with some nice hits. He is not tall and low to the ground with some weight behind him. He can rock opponents, and his skating was avg last night.
