Playoff-implications pair at Pullar

February 26, 2016

Soo Eagles will play host to the Blind River Beavers tonight and the Espanola Express on Saturday in a crucial two-game home-stand at Pullar Stadium.

While the Eagles will definitely finish fourth in the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League’s West Division, their weekend opponents are desperately battling for the fifth-and-final playoff spot.

Fifth-place Espanola holds a three-point lead on sixth-place Blind River as time winds down on the NOJHL regular-season schedule.

The expansion Express has five games to play in the regular season while the Beavers are down to their last four contests.
