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...
I love people that use the 'well the series could easily be x' statements. The series is 3-0 Oshawa. Period. I am glad you commented on the shot discrepancy as it's not even close. I've watched games 2 and 3 on TV and attended Game 1 and I haven't found it as close as you have mentioned. I'll agree that maybe the Gens are taking Miss lightly which is similar to your Gens still playing in regular season mode comment. However, fact of the matter is it's 3-0 and although two games have gone to extra time the Gens blew them out badly in game 1 and in my eyes looked like the dominant team in games 2 and 3 (which I was shocked they blew the 2 goal lead late last game). If Miss fans want to hold their head up high after having a horrendous season by coming in 8th out of a 10 conference team and then one game away from being swept out of the playoffs than be my guest. Gens will be bad next season and you won't see me posting about how we lost with dignity or whatever else.
