Looking at the Saint John Sea Dogs' upcoming schedule, the next couple weeks could play a major factor in where the club finishes in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League standings.
Saint John sits 15th overall in the league with an 18-25-0-0 record. The top 16 teams will make the playoffs while the bottom two will have their seasons end early and get entered into the draft lottery for the first overall pick.
Sherbrooke (16th), Cape Breton (17th), and Shawinigan (18th) all sit below Saint John. Over the next couple weeks, the Dogs will play four games against these teams.
