North Bay used two third-period goals to rally past Niagara in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series tonight and capture the series. Meanwhile, Peterborough completed an improbable comeback from a 3 games to none deficit in their series with Kingston with a 2-1 overtime win in Game 7 tonight. Check out the final first-round scores…by the way, I finished the first round with a 7-1 series record. Sudbury’s loss to Barrie was the lone blemish

Players to watch
Oshawa – LW Michael Dal Colle (39 goals, 56 assists, 95 points), C Scott

Scott Laughton

Laughton (40-47-87), G Daniel Altshuller (31-13-0-3 record, 2.56 goals-against average, .917 save percentage, 2 shutouts), C Cole Cassels (24-49-73), RW Dylan Smoskowitz (29-17-46)

Outlook: Forget that the Steelheads beat Oshawa in their first meeting of the season. These aren’t the same Steelheads, and the Generals are much stronger. This series won’t be close.
Prediction: Oshawa in 4 games

Prediction: Petes in 7 games
_______________________________________________________________________________

Outlook: The Wolves made bold moves at the trade deadline. They struggled down the stretch, but now is the time to make those moves pay off.
Prediction: Sudbury in 7 games
