Ottawa 67’s set for OHL Championship vs. Guelph
The Arena at TD Place is set to get loud and proud Thursday night when the Ottawa 67’s open up their OHL Championship series against the Guelph Storm in what promises an all-out war for Ontario hockey supremacy.
And with the winner advancing to the Memorial Cup championship in Halifax in May, you should expect to see a battle royale between the league’s hottest team and the team from Guelph that has been dubbed, “the comback kings.”
While Ottawa has felled each foe with ease throughout these playoffs – a record-breaking 12-0 run through three rounds of the playoffs, the Guelph Storm have taken a tougher route to the finals, but an equally impressive one. It didn’t take long for the Storm to see themselves down 3-0 in their series against the heavily-favoured London Knights. But the Storm surged back, tying the series at 3 before mounting the ultimate comeback with a 6-3 win in Game 7. In Round 3, the Storm again erased a 3-1 series defecit to eliminate the Saginaw Spirit and advance to the OHL Championship.
Ottawa and Guelph split their regular season series 1-1 with Ottawa squeaking out an overtime victory in their last outing on Feb. 1.
