Solid win tonight to go up 2-0 in the series. Don't agree with George benching Worrad for the first period as it directly led to Missisauga's only goal. Still though, a good win. Game 3 up tomorrow afternoon! Good luck boys!
He played well. No doubt about that. The Bulls took far too many penalties. Some deserved and a couple that were questionable at best. Time to regroup for tomorrow night. I expect them to come out hard early in the 1st.
Well the Bulls are in a ton of trouble after another loss tonight. The Bulls are the much better team but seem to be getting outworked and outhustled by a team that wants it more right now. The bulls better get it together quickly or this will probably be the most embarassing first round exit in OHL history and will surely lose Burnett his job. I'm very confident the Bulls will pull out this series but each game seems to be getting worse. The fancy stuff doesn't work in playoff hockey, you need shots to the net and crash and bang. Also a powerplay is what wins hockey games and the Steelheads is clicking and the Bulls continues to struggle. Also, if the Bulls thought they struggled with attendance before, imagine if they have a first round exit. Attendance would be dismal next year. I am very confident the Bulls will get it together but time is running out. I'm getting very frustrated and need to vent a little bit haha
Well, I have never seen a worse pp than i have in the last year! Terrible the same system and set-up, d-men to far back, one player on the half wall, one in front and one below the blue line? too much cycling and not anough shots on net, thus those dirty goals! i can count on one hand how many times a bulls player took the puck to the net! DRIVE the net boys! Will the real Bulls PLEASE stand up.
Calm down everyone. The Bulls fought all year for home ice advantage throughout the playoffs. They have that. Until they lose at home there's not much to worry about in my opinion. Remember, Mississauga HAS to beat Belleville in Belleville. The Bulls don't need to beat Mississauga in Mississauga (though it would be nice).
Yes the Power Play is still awful, but I don't think it's as bad as it's been all year. In fact in the playoffs, I've never seen the power play look better (that's not saying much since it was abysmal in the regular season). Lots of puck movement and shots towards the net. It's definitely better than it has been all year.
Besides the 2nd period last night, the Bulls dictated the play throughout the game. They are still in control in this series because of their home ice advantage. If they lose Saturday, then yes it's time to panic.
Bulls trade OS 5th on saturday to Windsor for MISS 5th next year. More to come? Still without a 3rd rounder this year.
Shouldn't the Bulls have Saginaw's 3rd from the Steven Strong trade, and Plymouth's 3rd from the Andy Bathgate trade? If so, it would be great if George could package his late 2nd with one of those 3rds to move up in the 2nd round. I'd like to see Belleville land YSE d-man Schlitchting, hopefully they can do it in the 2nd round rather than the first, but he's a 15th-35th overall type guy IMO. I'm big on Henley from Oakville as well, but I'm not sure if he's still going to be around at 18.
