vCash: 500 bad is this team playing right now? It's a flashback to October and November when players stopped working and skating. With the exception of a few players, this team just isn't skating or fighting for any pucks. It has to be extremely frustrating for JP Anderson with his teammates not playing hard in front of him.

The Greyhounds played a strong game. I noticed that the Sting had difficulty creating anything offensively mainly because the forwards would pull up once they gained the offensive blueline rather than take pucks hard to the net. The Greyhounds were constantly hustling back taking away any late passing options for the player that pulled up at the blueline. It was quite evident that the Soo was aware that Sarnia likes to use this strategy to hit the high guy coming in and prepared for it with simple hustling on the back check. Simple hockey.

It will be interesting to see how Sarnia does against the Otters, one of the OHL's weaker teams.
