Positive Thinking

The Sea Dogs have returned to Saint John down 2-0 in their best-of-seven series against the Baie-Comeau Drakkar.

Things may look bleak, but here are a few tidbits to remember heading into game three on Tuesday…

  • Both games were close. This isn’t like the Halifax/Saint John series from 2013. It’s certainly possible that the Sea Dogs could come back and even or take the lead in this series. Especially since…
  • The Drakkar were terrible on the road this season. They had just nine road wins all year, tying them for the second fewest in the league.
  • The Sea Dogs won the only meeting at Harbour Station between the two this season.
  • Saint John has scored just two goals this series but have had good puck possession time in the offensive zone. They have got to find a way to get more shots through the Drakkar defense.
  • After a rough end to the regular season, Sebastien Auger looked like his usual self in games one and two.

Following Tuesday’s game three, game four will be held on Thursday. If a game five is needed it will be played on Saturday at 4 p.m. at Harbour Station.
