OHL East Quarter-Finals - Oshawa Generals lead series 2-0

March 22 - vs Niagara IceDogs

Biggs had no points, but played his role well and got IceDogs second best forward Brett Ritichie off the ice for 5 min with a fight midway through the third period. The Generals are in control of this series on the scoreboard and on the ice, getting many 2 on 1's when they are on the penalty kill. Generals took game 1 5-2

March 24 - vs Niagara IceDogs

No points again for Biggs but he is making an impact on the ice, helping to throw the IceDogs off their game and causing the visitors to take unnecessary penalties. The visitors stayed i nit though and came on stronger than Friday, but the Generals still won the game 4-3.

Ryan Rupert - London Knights, OHL

OHL West Quarter-Finals - London Knights lead series 2-0

March 22 - vs Saginaw Spirit

Ryan Rupert had no points in the game, and the Knights easily went on to beat the Spirit 5-2.

March 24 - vs Saginaw Spirit

The Spirit came back stronger in Game 2, forcing the Knights into double overtime to win the game. Ryan Rupert assisted on Londons first goal, cutting the Spirits lead to 2-1 in the second period. The Spirit taking the Knights to double OT was a bit of a shock, most predictions had the Knights easily sweeping Sagniaw.

OHL West Quarter-Finals - Owen Sound leads series 2-0

March 21 - @ Owen Sound Attack

David Broll didn't put up any numbers aside from a 2 min cross checking penalty in the third, and Owen Sound won the game 4-2. Bad blood between the two teams seems like it will keep bubbling up this series. Owen Sound player Cameron Brace made a Lupul-esqe hit on the Soo's Jared McCann. McCann left the rink to stay at the hospital for observation. Brace was suspended 5 games for the hit.

March 23 - @ Owen Sound Attack

The Attack are living up to their name vs the Greyhounds, with fighting and roughing being the most given penalties in this series so far. David Broll put up no points but had two fighting majors in the first 21 minutes of the game. Owen Sound won the game 2-1 in overtime.

Stuart Percy - Mississauga Steelheads, OHL

No logo for the Steelheads, but their hashtag is , which is awesome.

OHL East Quarter-Finals - Belleville leads series 2-1

March 21 - @ Belleville Bulls

A bad game for the Trout, not many had this series pegged to go more than 5 games, but no one expected it to open with an 8-1 loss. Stuart Percy was a -3 with no points in the game. Both teams racked up over 30 min in penalties each, and with the OHL's 10 fight limit lifted or reset for the playoffs we saw 5 bouts in this game.

March 23 - @ Belleville Bulls

Percy was a -1 this game, an improvement over last time, but Belleville was still victorious with a 4-1 win.

March 24 - vs Belleville Bulls

Percy assisted on a late power play goal in the first period to tie the game at one apiece, and the Steelheads would go on to win the game 2-1 in the last minute of the contest.
