Attack On The Brink


By Fred Wallace

The Ontario Hockey League Playoffs continue tonight in Owen Sound, and as every Attack fan knows, the playoffs could end tonight in Owen Sound.

The O.H.L. Regular Season Champion Windsor Spitfires lead the Attack 3 games to none in the best of 7 and are just one road win away from dispatching the Attack and moving on to round 2

Windsor got a huge start in the series at home, roaring out to a 5-0 lead and then cruising to a 7-4 win in game 1.

The Attack roared out to a 4-1 lead in game 2, but couldn't hold it, losing 7-5 at the Harry Lumley-Bayshore.

And then Sunday afternoon back in Windsor, another quick start and a 3 goal burst late in the second period propelled Windsor to a convincing 6-1 win and a 3-0 lead in the series.

Everybody that handicaps hockey believes the 48 point gap between the two teams made Windsor the heavy favorite to win and win in 4 straight.

But here's the bad news, or maybe the scary news.

I think the Spitfires, by thir own admission, haven't played their best hockey yet.

The Attack, who may be overmatched in this year's playoff contest have played decently in stretches, and perhaps they've played better than expected against this caliber of opponent.

Regardless of who's playing well, Windsor is on the brink of advancing and could do so with a win tonight at the J.D. McArthur Arena.

Game time tonight is 7 pm.
