poll - London vs Kitchener

Who will win and in how many games.

I say London in 5. Reading some Kitchener quotes it seems like they don't really expect to win and just hope to put up a fight. Voakes basically said "we're not going to get swept" and "it'll go six at least".

They could just be ensuring nothing they say goes on any London locker room boards.

Have you seen Voakes play? That quote equates pretty well with his on-ice spark.....

Aren't you jumping the gun a little? Who knew it would be Kitchener sitting around waiting to see who they play in round 3?

Do you think if Kitchener is holding a practise today they'll be watching any Spitfire game tapes? I doubt it. Every quote I saw from them (including the coach) was about playing London - so if I'm jumping the gun I'm not the only one.

It would be one of the bigger hockey upsets of the year if Windsor won *tonight* - and that would just make London mad.

I don't think there's any doubt on earth that London will win their series with Windsor - I was just having fun (and I may be a little giddy from the shock of watching Kitchener sweep the Attack...).

You deserve to be giddy - it was a very impressive win.

I'm also excited at the prospect of London finally having a worthy opponent.

You couldn't wait till 10pm to start this thread? Or even till the end of the 1st period? Have a little sympathy for the Spits fans on here please.

Congrats on the sweep Charlie Girl, I pass the Perry heckling torch on to you. Do it proud.

....London in 5 is my prediction but it could easily go 6. Should be a good series.

This thread should be deleted and re-posted if/when London actually makes the third round. I don't think there's much doubt, but, "there's a reason why they play the games".

Our series should be done, but the OHL commissoners office is stupid!

Dunno - seems a waste to delete this entire thread and repost in 3 1/2 hours.

I've been wrong in every prediction I've made since joining, Kitchener in 7.

I think London takes it in 5. Kitchener has really battled hard through this whole playoffs (especially Richards, jeez). But I think the Knights are just too strong.

I know. You probably would've wanted the jinx on their side. But it's got to be a gut feeling and my gut is siding with Kitchener.

I guess if you're wrong on every pick since joining, the fact that you're going to be wrong on one more isn't a big deal

Hey - you have to be right eventually. Here's hoping this is the time!

I just don't think there is a team out there in the O that can take 4 of 7 from the Knights, IIRC the Knights didn't lose two games to one team any time this year.....why start now? They were a perfect 6-0 against Kitchener this year, and came back a few times as well. I know the playoffs are a different ball game, but Richards can't be on the ice when waves of 4 good lines are going at you.

You're right though - no team has beaten London more than once. I've felt all year no team is going to be able to win 4 against these guys - they're just too deep.

I'm hoping kitchener takes two games so that there'll be three games to attend at least.
I went to the knights game in london tonight, and jeez, this whole OHL playoffs thing is getting pretty expensive.


Now i've gotta figure out how to get up at 8:00 am on saturday to go get tickets to another game...

anyone know when the schedule will be released so that I don't end up buying tickets to a game playing when I have an exam? Cause that'd be a tough choice......

Kitchener in 6, they are bigger and stronger and will win this series physically IMO. Also their penalty kill is great right now.

The Kitchener / Owen Sound series proved more about Owen Sound then it did about Kitchener. Kitchener is playing well but they're still the team that put up a big donut in the win column in 6 games against London. London is deeper then Owen Sound, mentally tougher and better defensively. I just don't see Kitchener pulling it off.

Whatever happens, I think Kitchener will better prepare London for whomever comes out of the West (as in the Memorial Cup WHL team).
