The Generals play in a mid-week game tonight at the Tribute Communities Centre as they take on the Kingston Frontenacs. After going 2-1-0-0 last weekend in the three-game stretch, the Gens come into the game with a 41-20-4-0 record on the season. With only three games remaining until playoffs, the Gens will aim for a win tonight to head into their final weekend of the regular season with momentum.
Oshawa’s matchup with Kingston tonight marks the seventh time that the two divisional teams will battle each other this season. So far in the season series, the Gens have gotten the better of the Fronts with a 4-2-0-0 record. With the last game between the two clubs resulting in a big 6-1 victory for Oshawa, look for the Gens to push offensively and try for the same outcome tonight.
With the Gens putting together plenty of wins down the stretch for a 7-2-1-0 record in their last ten contests, the team sits at 86 points in 65 games on the season. They currently hold second place in their division and fourth place in the eastern conference only one point behind the third place Sudbury Wolves. Meanwhile, the Kingston Frontenacs remain at the bottom of the east with a season record of 14-49-1-1. With both teams coming off shutout losses in their last contest, expect each to come out hungry for an early first goal tonight.
In the final week of the regular season, two Gens to keep an eye on include the team’s leading point producer Brandon Saigeon and the leading goal scorer Anthony Salinitri. Since arriving in Oshawa in January, Saigeon has been one of the team’s top producers with a point-per-game at 25 points through 25 games in a Gens jersey. His incredible 88 points on the season puts him in 12th in the OHL for scoring and first on the Gens. Salinitri isn’t far behind Saigeon, claiming the 13th spot in OHL scoring with 85 points including an amazing 45 goals in 65 games. With three games remaining, look for each forward to finish off the regular season strong and continue to add to their impressive numbers.
Join us at the Tribute Communities Centre tonight for the 7:05pm puck drop to watch the Gens as they go toe-to-toe with the Kingston Frontenacs! After tonight, the team will go on to play the Fronts in Kingston on Friday before concluding the regular season with a game at home against the Sudbury Wolves on Sunday.
