For real. Oshawa coasted? We didn’t sweep a single series unlike Erie and the Soo. Mancina played unreal for the Pete’s in round 1 and that North Bay series was pure defensive hockey. That excuse is comical. My favourite series would be that North Bay one. Gennies got worked by them the year before so there was a lot on the line. Series started with North Bay kicking our ass 6-1. I remember being so frustrated at how aggressive they were playing our D. They forced so many turnovers. It looked like it was going to be a repeat of the previous year. Game 2 was a 1-0 OT win for the Gennies (thank you Mermis). Game 3 was another close game. North Bay won 2-1 in OT. Gennies won the next two 3-2 and 4-1. Appleby shut the door in game 6 and won 2-1. A 6 game series, four games were decided by 1 goal, two games in OT. Jake Smith and Kenny Appleby put on a show that series. A close 2nd would obviously be the finals. We were one of the best teams all year, yet somehow went in as the underdogs against McDavid. Cassels won’t make a name for himself at the pro level, but Gens fans won’t forget what he did in the finals.
