(Almost) March Madness

It’s shaping up to be a wild finish to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League season.

Five teams – Bathurst, Charlottetown, Saint John, Shawinigan, and Sherbrooke – are in a battle for the league’s final three playoff spots. 13th-place Chicoutimi still hasn’t officially clinched but, you know, they basically have.

These five teams could realistically finish anywhere from 14th to 18th. Saint John and Shawinigan have both picked it up in the second half while Charlottetown and Bathurst have fallen back. Sherbrooke has pretty much been Sherbrooke all year. None of these five teams have been picking up a lot of wins of late.

It’s also worth noting that the Sea Dogs have two games remaining against the Titan and one with the Islanders. Saint John plays in Charlottetown on the final day of the regular season and it would be real neat if the final playoff spot came down to that game.

The Sea Dogs have nine games remaining this season including tomorrow night's game against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles at Harbour Station.

UPDATE: Titan Nation has a cool look at the standings.
