The Barrie Colts will cap off the month of November with three road games this week as they finish off a very tough part of their schedule that has seen them play 14 of 19 games away from the BMC.
The Colts are 6-5 this month and are guaranteed of getting out of November with at least a .500 record as they play in Owen Sound on Wednesday night.
It is the Colts ninth road game of the month as they visit an Owen Sound squad that has lost three of their last four games.
The Colts had a five-game winning streak snapped on Saturday night against the Wolves and are looking to get back in to the win column as they trail the Brampton Battalion by just two points for first in the Central division.
With a win on Wednesday the Colts can leapfrog Niagara and move in to a tie with Brampton and Peterborough and would be just three points shy of first overall in the Eastern Conference. Standings.
The Attack boast a pair of 15-goal scorers in Daniel Catenacci and Mike Halmo. Catenacci leads the club with 30 points in 28 games played; Halmo and Gemel Smith each have 29 points.
The Colts top two scorers have combined for 100 points in 25 games played. The league’s leading scorer Tanner Pearson continues his rapid pace with 19 goals and 37 assists for 56 points. He is currently riding a 12 game scoring streak with 8 goals and 18 assists in that span and is just two games shy of tying Behenna’s league-best streak of 14 games.
Both Pearson and Behenna have picked up at least one point in 23 of 25 games this season. Behenna is fourth in league scoring with 12 goals and 32 assists for 44 points.
Mark Scheifele has tallied a point in all but one of his 14 games and has 26 points on the season. Recently the center has been playing with Ivan Telegin who has really hit his stride as of late, putting up seven goals and four assists in a seven-game point streak.
The Colts have dropped a pair of games against Owen Sound this season. The defending champs beat the Colts 2-1 and 4-2, both at the BMC.
Barrie is off on Thursday and will then play the Otters on Friday for their lone visit to Erie. On Saturday the Colts are in Niagara to play the IceDogs.
