Coming off two big wins over the Kingston Frontenacs this week, the Gens enter the game with a 43-20-4-0 record on the season. With the last contest before playoffs, the Gens will look for a victory at home to head into the post-season with momentum.
Oshawa's matchup with Sudbury tonight will mark the fourth and final time that the two clubs will go head to head this season.

In the final week of the regular season, two Gens to keep an eye on include the team's leading point producer Brandon Saigeonand the leading goal scorer Anthony Salinitri. Since arriving in Oshawa in January, Saigeon has been one of the team's top producers with a point-per-game at 25 points through 25 games in a Gens jersey.

With three games remaining, look for each forward to finish off the regular season strong and continue to add to their impressive numbers.
