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.
