3 in 3, bus broke down – arrived to the rink an hour before the game and injured players are excuses and yes they are reasons to tilt the balance in one team’s favour, however, Ottawa proved they are the BETTER regular season team.

However, in junior hockey, one blowout game means nothing the next time you play that team (e.g., Just watch what happen in SSM on Saturday). The lose means even less, when the next time you play that team - it will be a playoff game two months later.

Playoffs hockey is whole different game – it looks nothing like a regular season game. And a talented team, labeled the underdogs, with a lot of playoff experience and intensity / motivation levels through the roof - are a dangerous team.

IceDogs are going to beat Ottawa in the finals!

Exactly my point. When we see these guys again (assuming they don't choke against a lesser light team lol) it'll be late April. The Eastern Conference Finals. A lot of things can be tweaked and teams can go on that "perfect roll" in that time period with no more misfires. It is sometimes a matter of chemistry and momentum as much as it is talent. The Dogs should be clicking on all cylinders by then and post-season is a different animal don't forget. Niagara can win just on the "home crowd" alone. Plus they'll be squared off solely on Ottawa and both teams will have the exact SAME travel time and distances to cover. The Ice Dogs WILL beat Ottawa again and their fans already know it!

Good point about the travel. Assuming it is these two teams in the final, once Niagara arrives in Ottawa the day before game one - the teams are going to be travelling the same distance back and forth on the same days and schedule throughout the 6 game series . Travel not an advantage or disadvantage to either team!

That’s right, playoffs are a different brand of hockey. One where you need good coaching, solid goaltending, stellar defence, play physical and have the ability to keep the pace for 60 minutes. Ottawa has the edge in every one of those categories. Sorry folks, I don’t see the Dogs beating this Ottawa team in a playoff series.

As much as I really do not want to agree with you but, I have to agree with you 100%.
Last night was about sending a message and from what I saw, the end result looks pretty dim

thanks for your thought Fishfan.
