CHL Playoff Notebook: April 22, 2019


Monday action saw one game on the docket in the Canadian Hockey League playoffs:

Ontario Hockey League

A two-point effort by Montreal Canadiens prospect Nick Suzuki helped the Guelph Storm to a 5-2 victory in Game 3 versus the Saginaw Spirit as his squad pulled within one. The pair of helpers pushed Suzuki to a league-leading 24 points in the postseason. The Storm will now look to even the series Wednesday on home ice.

The Ottawa 67’s hit the road Wednesday when they will try for the sweep versus the Oshawa Generals. Ottawa remains a perfect 11-0 in the playoffs, with rookie forward Marco Rossi emerging as one of the team’s top contributors in the third round as he’s tallied four goals and four assists. A series win would mark the first time since 2005 that the 67’s have captured the Bobby Orr Trophy, presented to the OHL’s Eastern Conference Champion.

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

The third round of QMJHL playoff action resumes Tuesday when the first-place Rouyn-Noranda Huskies will look to push the Rimouski Oceanic to the brink of elimination, while the 2019 Memorial Cup presented by Kia host Halifax Mooseheads will look to take the series lead in Game 3 versus the Drummondville Voltigeurs.

Western Hockey League

The Spokane Chiefs return home Tuesday when they will look to pull within one of the Vancouver Giants in Game 3 action, while the league champion Prince Albert Raiders hope to get back in the win column after dropping Game 2 to the Edmonton Oil Kings.
