Ontario Hockey League Conference Semifinals

For the most part the Ontario Hockey League went as scripted as the OHL Conference Quarterfinals say 6 of the 8 first round series wrap up in 5 games in less. Both of the top teams in the Windsor Spitfires & Barrie Colts swept the Erie Otters while the Barrie Colts just thrashed the Sudbury Wolves by scoring 6 or more goals in 3 of the 4 games, including a 11-4 win on the opening night.

Overall, just 2 series were had any kind of drama as the Kingston Frontenacs and Brampton Battalion where just 2 of the games were won by the home team. Kitchener took down the Saginaw Spirit in 6 games as we had a number of close games as Kitchener won just over a minute into the extra period.

Overall, just one game had any kind of blowout as the Rangers beat the Spirit 4-1 back on Game 4. Kitchener will run into their Midwest Divisional Rivalries London Knights as London & Kitchener have been neck-and-neck several times in recent years for the Midwest Division Title in recent years.

The other series that should be coming in with much interest is the #2 VS. #3 Series in the East as the Mississauga St. Micheal's Majors and the Ottawa 67s in the Eastern Conference.

All 4 of the Series' will get underway on Thursday Night. All the Best of 7 Series' will be back and fourth except for the Ottawa VS. Mississauga Series.
