Down 3-0 put watched all three games on-line and series could easily be 2-1 for Miss. Will grant that the Generals have the best team and at times have dominated the ice but in large Mississauga has held them in check, even dominating in the offensive zone when playing along the boards. Sure, shots have heavily favored the GENS but more due to Mississauga's lack of general offence and ineffective PP than actual puck possession time.
Martin certainly also has been more than a factor but also kudos to their young inexperienced D-core. To summaries, Mississauga is playing play-off hockey the Gens are still in regular season mode. Series will likely be short but the Steelheads can move on to next year with their heads high and optimistic for next season, and still it is not over...would love to see them drag this series maybe even upset, certainly would open things up in the East. Never underestimate the power of being an underdog, they win tonight and sneak a win tomorrow and all bets are off...
