Miners chasing Birds
February 14, 2014
Having won 24 straight games, one might think that Soo Thunderbirds would have first place in the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League clinched by now.
But they don’t.
With a record of 42-4-2, the Thunderbirds have 86 points with 8 games to play in the 2013-2014 regular-season schedule.
But despite the Soo’s record and 24-game winning streak, Kirkland Lake Gold Miners remain within range.
Kirkland Lake has 76 points from a record of 36-6-4 and has two games in hand on the Soo.
And the two teams still have two games to play with one another.
First up is this Sunday at 3 p.m. when the Thunderbirds play host to the Gold Miners at the Essar Centre.
