I have actually seen a dozen or so Moosehead games this year, they are far from unbeatable. Horvat on Mackinnon and a strong forcheck would make for an interesting game.

No they are not unbeatable but they have only lost 10 total games out of 80 thus far and 6 of them in regulation. The good thing for London is they would only face Halifax in a 1 game series and not a 7 game series.

Ya the stats are impressive but they have yet to play a strong opponent in the playoffs. Rouyn Noranda took them to OT twice as an eight seed and really exposed the lack of defensive disciple on the Moose. London is much deeper and more defensive than Rouyn.

Couldn't you say the same thing about Plymouth exposing the London D scoring 12 goals over the last 3 games? It goes both ways.

Good point, but Rouyn is no Plymouth. I am still curious about Barrie, London will have to beat them to get to the Moose.

Another close game tonight that could go either way, or does one team finally beat the other by a few?

Im hoping for a Barrie /London final but both clubs have to close out tough teams still.

Razor (or Libbs if your around) what has the competition been like for Halifax in the Q?

From what little Ive heard London (barrie/Belleville/Ply) maybe considered as 3rd best team in tourney.

I know that it was after a hit but I love how Heard gets and instigator when Zadorov drops his gloves well before Heard drops his.

Heard went after him looking for the fight, it was the right call

Warm up the bus! Wilson is an idiot. Plymouths lack of composure has cost them. 4-0...get the bus ready

Gotta hold onto leads better... 4-3 now.

I'll add that the first 2 periods were great.

Not sure I like the back off and trap strategy, especially not against this team

Tie game. If the Knights manage to lose this series (not losing hope, don't worry), point to this blown lead.

I've never liked sitting on a lead. If you want to hold a lead... play with the puck in their end. That's the best way to play defense.

I could not agree more. London was dominating on the forcheck, why back off?

Knights were buzzing the last minute of the 3rd. Ice was still wet when Domi got it in!

Question for anyone, will the Knights have home ice for the OHL Finals?
