I think Kitchener will win the series, but I also think it will be very close. Erie has several elite forwards with O'Marra, Blunden, and Platt but is lacking defensively. That is where Kitchener's strength is. They have four top notch defensemen including Kindl, Lashoff, and Andre Benoit. Up front they have one of the OHL's best in Mike Richards and also have the experience of a Memorial Cup victory a few years ago. I think the Rangers could do a lot of damage this year, especially if Turple gets hot.
Has Pfligler dissappeared yet? I swear he's been shrinking all season... Maybe Packwood?
Turple is listed as day-to-day (gee, what a surprise in playoffs). My guess is that Pfligler will get the start tonight, with Packwood as backup. *shudder* Pfligler is a common cause of ulcers in Rangers fans. He's pretty small (5'8"), and looks even smaller when you're used to seeing 6'6" Turple in net.
To continue the trend this year in Kitchener, Packwood has an almost healed broken finger, but should be able to play if he's called upon.
