    Not using McCabe or Brochu could also have something to do with those two guys keeping their options open and not wanting to commit yet and lose their NCAA eligiblility especially since they would not get to actually play. Also, their Junior teams might not want to lose a goalie for an entire weekend.

    Can the Knights reach the 50 win plateau this year with 28 games remaining, I think they can as they only need 21 more wins. To finish first overall in the league I am guessing they will need approximately 106 - 108 pts , and this would bring them close to the 3003-04 season of 53 wins and 110 total points season. They won the cup the following year with the team of the century, this team would look good next year too.

    I usually make a prediction every year with around 30 games remaining. The vets around here will tell you I'm usually pretty good at it and come pretty close. Not rocket science but it's fun to take a shot at it every year.

    28 games remaining...I'll predict the Knights will win 18-20 of those games

    Let's aim in the middle and say 19

    which would make my prediction for the season

    48-12-4-4 for 104 pts

    if they sweep this road trip I may need to recalculate ;)

    It's a very reserved prediction and is very much attainable too, I like it

    How’s he been? Off an on? Seems a little odd that the other guy wouldn’t get a game?

    I'm most interested in our games against Guelph, SSM and Saginaw (3, 2 and 3 games respectively). But especially with Guelph.

    For the rest I just want to see them do enough to hold 1st seed and develop chemistry.

    If we're doing that...I predict the Knights will go 0-28 over the last 28 games

    Those who know...know

    Knights are lucky to be only down 1-0. Raaymakers better cool it with his antics. Especially with a junior C goalie as a backup.

    Kinda reminds me of this game Ontario Hockey League – Official Site of the Ontario Hockey League

    Adam Dennis ended up suspended. Jim McKellar had to drive back to London to pick up K.J. Robinson to back up on the rest of the eastern swing

    Knights ended up shutting out Kingston and Ottawa in the other two games and went on a nice 12 game winning streak.

    It's been an ongoing problem for a few years now, they have a habit of not starting road games on the right note from the drop of the puck. They have been trying to light up some sparks though, I think they will be alright in this game but they better not try that tomorrow or Sunday

    I think we are getting a taste of why Dalton Duhart didn't fit in with this team.....

    You're not putting 6 Past Ukko, we've only lost at home 4 times this season. Best of luck :)
