Ottawa Lynx 48-18-5
The regular season comes to its conclusion tonight as the Ottawa Lynx travel to Saskatoon to take on the Wild.
Its been a thrilling ride so far for the club, they've mostly held steady in third place in the VHLM. Halifax and Las Vegas hold 9 and 4 points leads respectively. They both play Yukon to wrap up their campaigns. GM Diamond_Ace says he's been happy with how the season has progressed and while he had hoped to finish first in the division, he feels confident about the teams chances in the playoffs.
The last week has seen some major upheaval in terms of packing order in team scoring. The second highest scoring team in the league is now led by 40 goal man Dan Wilinsky who has had a fire lit under him since being moved to centre on the second line. Roctrion King has provided steady offense all season with 39 goals. Another rookie Chace Trepanier has passed the 30 goal mark with 33. Lando Baxter was far and away the leading point getter on the back end with 21 goals 66 assists and 87 points. He led the way in both assists and points.
Two of the top prospects for the upcoming VHL draft Joseph McWolf and Ryan Kastelic provided stellar defense together and look to be solid picks to whoever chooses them.
In goal Kallis Kriketers has been resting for the playoffs. He finished the year with 45 wins, an .896 save percentage and a 2.10 goals against average. Rookie Milan Baros has played each of the last four games and is slated as the starter again tonight. He has 3 wins and a shootout loss.
The Lynx seem ready to rumble in the league playoffs, they are healthy, motivated and look confident in their group. They'll start off on the road but they've managed to assemble a 21-11-3 record away from home. They will be ready to go in any way. Go Lynx.
