The backs are against the wall. They’ll need to bring their “A” game. All the hockey clichés will be used as the Barrie Colts find themselves in a must-win situation if they want to extend their 2016 OHL Playoff run.
It’s Game 7 of the Best of 7 first round playoff series and Mississauga was supposed to be a fairly easy first round for the Colts, but the tough Steeheads team doesn’t appear to want to go down without a fight.
Mississauga has managed to scrap their way to a game 7 and it’s Barrie that will be facing the pressure tonight at the Barrie Molson Centre. Mississauga has to be very happy just to have made it this far.
The season for both teams comes down to this one game tonight. The winner advances to the next round of the playoffs, the losers will be cleaning out their lockers later this week and will have to wait for next season to compete again.
Go Colts Go!
