The Generals conclude their regular season tonight at the Tribute Communities Centre with a matchup against the Sudbury Wolves. Coming off two big wins over the Kingston Frontenacs this week, the Gens enter the game with a 43-20-4-0 record on the season. With the last contest before playoffs, the Gens will look for a victory at home to head into the post-season with momentum.
Oshawa’s matchup with Sudbury tonight will mark the fourth and final time that the two clubs will go head to head this season. So far in the season series, the Wolves have the edge over the Gens with two wins and one shootout loss, with their last meeting resulting in a 5-4 win for Sudbury. The Gens will aim for revenge tonight and to grab the last two points before playoffs.
With a strong finishing run toward the end of the season and a 7-2-1-0 record in their last ten contests, the Gens sit at 90 points in 67 games on the season. They currently hold fourth place in the eastern conference only one point behind the third place Sudbury Wolves sitting at 91 points in as many games. If the Gens can come away with a victory in tonight’s contest, they will successfully pass the Wolves to claim third place in the conference and go up against the team that finishes sixth in the first round of the playoffs.
Two Gens players to keep an eye on in tonight’s game who had a strong outing against the Frontenacs on Friday include forward Brett Neumann and defenseman Lleyton Moore. Neumann provided tons of offence in the huge 6-1 win over the Fronts, potting 2 goals and adding an assist for a 3-point night. Moore also had a great performance after notching 2 helpers of his own on goals from Anthony Salinitri and Neumann. In the last game of the regular season, look for each player to come into the game hungry for another standout performance and to head into the playoffs on a high note.
