  1. Ottawa Canadians (24-1-1) | Last week: 1 | Results: 10-4W vs EMB, 3-2OTL at ALX | The Canadians dominated against Embrun but were shocked when they went into extra times for the first time this season. It ended up in their second loss on the road against Alexandria.


  1. Casselman Vikings (19-5-1) | Last week: 2 | Results: 4-3OTL at ATH | The Vikings are always a team that likes to comeback from two goal deficits.
