Joe Tomato's Weekend Preview - Trio of Games for Week 18

January 17, 2019 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) - Owen Sound Attack News Release

The team is back in action this weekend for a trio of games including a match on home ice Saturday at the Bayshore! The roster is set and the playoff push is on. Here is the Joe Tomato's Weekend Preview for Week 18 of the OHL Season.

The weekend begins with a matchup against the Guelph Storm, their first meeting since the trade deadline with new look rosters for both teams. The puck will drop at the Sleeman Centre at 7:30 on Friday night.

The home team has won every game this season between the Midwest Divisional rivals but Owen Sound hopes to snap that streak and go up 4-2 in the season tally. Barret Kirwin and Mark Woolley will make their return against former teammates and the Attack will see many familiar faces that are now wearing Guelph Storm red. The Bears are just four points back of the Storm for 4th in the Western Conference.

The Attack play their first home game in ten days on Saturday night against the Mississauga Steelheads. The game begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Bayshore. Tickets are limited.

Owen Sound has won the only meeting between the two teams this season, a 5-3 victory at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre in October. Mississauga currently holds the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference, just four points ahead Barrie Colts with 41 on the season.

The weekend wraps up with an afternoon affair against the Kitchener Rangers. The game at the Memorial Auditorium will begin at 2 p.m. and will be the 4th matchup in 3 weeks between the two teams. So far, Kitchener has won 2 of the 3 games but the Attack were the most recent victors having won on January 9th, 4-3.
