Re: London Nationals/Leamington Flyers

The Falls' PP is certainly deadly clicking at 38%. London's is 22% despite having a slow start in the first 2 rounds. In the finals against the Flyers, the Nats were 7 for 17 (41.2%) and 6 for 10 (60%) in the last 3 games against a team that had the 3rd best penalty killing in the regular season. Th...

Re: Leamington Komoka series

As a hockey fan, I'd love to see the Flyers win tonight so I can see a game seven. There's nothing like a game 7! The Flyers have played quite poorly on the road this season and have had problems holding onto leads in this series. Regardless who wins tonight, the game should be a dandy!

Re: Leamington Komoka series

The Flyers don't have a lot of offensive punch. They certainly miss regular season scoring leader Adam Jeffery who has yet to play in this series. Ryan Gagnier, who was a 20-goal scorer in the regular season, has just 1 goal in 8 playoff games. Others need to pick up the slack or they could be on th...

Re: First Round Predictions

Usually a popular thread in the postseason, but not this year for some reason. I'll take a stab at it. Not necessarily my hopes, but my expectations - Flyers, Nats, Maroons all sweep in 4, the Legion in 7.

As we head into the final week of the regular season we have 3 tight races remaining. Chatham is locked in 3rd, Komoka in 6th and St. Marys in 9th. The other seeds are all up for grabs. Leamington leads London by 1 point for 1st. The Flyers host Chatham and go to Komoka The Nats host both St. Thomas...

Re: Strathroy vs LaSalle

With about 9 seconds left the Vipers made a long stretch pass from deep in their zone (with their goaltender still in the net) up the sideboards to the Rocket blueline. They pulled the goalie then. After an attempt at a goal the puck went to the opposite side of the rink where Fancy managed to get t...

Re: Leamington to take the Division?

The Flyers have been a strong third period team all season. Need to play a full 60 come playoff time. The Rockets' injured keeper Michelizzi was dressed as back up last night but took zero shots in warmup. Rockets don't play for a week. Maybe he will be ready by next Saturday.

Rockets have been 0-3 since that time. The Rockets had lost their leading scorer Emmet Pierce the game before when the London Kni...

Re: Chatham Maroons 1 Win in last 6 ??

They are a puzzling team. In their second last trip in Strathroy just before Christmas they played great in a 4-1 win. They appeared to come in wth a plan. They were structured, employed an aggressive forecheck, attacked the puck carrier and utilized a neutral zone trap that the Rockets couldn't cra...

Re: Strathroy

For some odd reason the refs have given coaches way too much leeway. It has been getting progressively worse every year. No way would the on-ice officials allow the bench staff to get away with this sort of behaviour years ago - and I'm not picking on the Chatham staff. I didn't see their behaviour ...

1 goal, 2 shots and a +1, pretty good start in a 4-3 loss. The Rockets will miss his shots in particular but everyone else will have to dig a little deaper. He averaged 4 shots a game with the Rockets. Harris, who has been out for a while averages almost 5. That is close to 10 shots a game that need...

Wednesday I suffered through another LaSalle Viper broadcast when they played Strathroy. There is no audio in LaSalle - just dead air. Now I know what it is like to be deaf and go to a hockey game. LaSalle has been that way for the past couple years as has Strathroy. Due to some sort of difficulties...

Re: 2018-19 Predictions

I actually think the Rockets have a better team this year than last year, the problem is everyone else, particularly St. Marys and Komoka who have been at the bottom with the Rockets the last few years, are better too.

For $250 for a season subscription, you need better service than that. I suffered through the Chatham/Strathroy game tonight. Of the 8 goals scored I saw 2 of them. Good thing the game was on Chatham radio, at least I could follow the action that way.
