AOHL This Week

Around The OHL This Week (February 24)

Power Rankings:

  1. London Knights – Won their last three, beat a hot Barrie team and watched Erie take a loss, good week for Dale Hunter’s crew.
  2. Erie Otters – Haven’t been on top of their game, losing to Saginaw and letting the Knights creep ever so close. Woke up in time to play Kitchener though.
  3. Kingston Frontenacs – Responded well to their loss to the Petes, and have done everything in their power to hold off a surging Colts team.
  4. Kitchener Rangers – Won twice and very nearly beat Erie, but none of the teams above them are giving up any ground.
  5. Barrie Colts – In a similar situation as Kitchener, playing extremely well, but so are the teams above.
  6. Sarnia Sting – Likely want that Flint game back, but managed to pull out an OT win against the Greyhounds.
  7. North Bay Battalion – Steamrolling teams, and winners of their last 4. Goal differential in that span? A whopping +19.
  8. Windsor Spitfires – Recovered from a rough stretch to win two straight, but gave up a lot of ground to the Sting in the process. Now they have to play a little catch up.
  9. Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds – Haven’t lost in regulation in their last five, and pulled off a nice win in Windsor.
  10. Owen Sound Attack – Beating Kitchener enough to bump them ahead of competition, but losing to Guelph ensures they go no further.
  11. Mississauga Steelheads – Sure their only wins came against Sudbury, but winning twice in one week is better than a lot of the teams below them can say.
  12. Peterborough Petes – Big win against Kingston, but big loss against North Bay keeps them below the Steelheads for now.
  13. Niagara IceDogs – Lost to Hamilton, then got stomped by a Kingston team that had played the night before, when Niagara had two days rest.
  14. Ottawa 67’s – They’re 0-3-1 over the past four, but at least have a solid lead over the teams below them in the standings.
  15. Oshawa Generals – Win against Ottawa keeps them out of the basement, but are much closer to the team below them than the team above.
  16. Saginaw Spirit – It amazes me how this team seems to always show up when they play the top teams, then disappear immediately after.
  17. Hamilton Bulldogs – Still deciding if beating Niagara is a big win or not, but again, this team is more competitive than they get credit for.
  18. Guelph Storm – Well that little blip of great hockey is gone, but this is still a much improved team from where they were earlier in the year.
  19. Sudbury Wolves – Have lost each of their past five, going to OT just once in those games.
  20. Flint Firebirds – Down here almost as much for their off-ice performance as they are for their on-ice.
