FRONTENACS LOOK TO STIFLE THE SPIRIT

Frontenacs looking to add more ground on Niagara and Barrie battling for second

While the Frontenacs had an easy go of the Flint Firebirds last Friday night at Rogers K-Rock Centre, don’t expect the same easy approach tonight when they face the Saginaw Spirit. Sure, the Spirit are only 7 points and 1 place ahead of the faltering Firebirds in the Western Conference, but Saginaw is no easy pushover.

The Spirit have 18 wins, 22 regulation losses, 2 overtime losses, and 2 shootout loss, for 40 points. They are 4 points behind the Soo Greyhounds for 7th, with Soo having the game in hand. In the past 10 games, the Spirit have 4 wins 5 regulation loss, and 1 shootout losses.

While Saginaw looks to continue to hold the final playoff spot in the Western Conference by adding points to their season–the 3-1 loss last night in Peterborough didn’t help their cause–the Frontenacs continue to hold top spot in the Eastern Conference. Coming off last weekend’s 2 wins in 3 games, the Fronts have 57 points and hold a 6 point lead over the Barrie Colts for top spot in the Conference and 9 points over the Peterborough Petes for the lead in the East Division. Kingston has 27 wins, 13 regulation losses, 2 overtime losses, and 1 shootout loss, for 57 points. In the past 10 games, the Frontenacs have 7 wins and 3 regulation losses.

BELL LET’S TALK: Frontenacs Captain Roland McKeown is featured in a number of public service announcements airing during tonight’s game on the videoboard promoting Bell Let’s Talk Day on January 27. Bell is giving 5-cents from every tweet with #BellLetstalk to mental health initiatives across the country.

BIG WEEKEND: After tonight’s game the Frontenacs hit the road on another 3-games-in-3-days weekend, with a highly anticipated match-up tomorrow in Barrie vs. the Colts and on Sunday afternoon in North Bay vs. the Battalion. Since January 1, Kingston has won 2 of 3 games on each of these 3-in-3 weekends.
