Three Things to Know
1. Mathieu Joseph and Matthew Highmore both extended their point streaks to 11 games last night.

2. The Sags seem to like playing the second game of a back-to-back. The good news for Saint John is that this is the final back-to-back in this series
3. The Sea Dogs have had just one power play over the past two games (and one of those games featured double overtime). There's just no way that can continue into a third game, right?
