Windsor Spitfires vs. Seattle Thunderbirds

Each of the four teams now has one game under its belt at the 2017 Memorial Cup. Windsor came away with a 3-2 victory despite a late charge from the QMJHL’s best team, the Saint John Sea Dogs, while Seattle couldn’t quite match the offence of the OHL powerhouse Erie Otters in last night’s contest.

As a result, the Thunderbirds will desperately be trying for a win over what should be the weakest team in the tournament, as Windsor is the only team not to win a single playoff round this spring.

The hosts didn’t look like a weak squad in their opener, however, and should be even better after loosening up after a six-week absence in their previous outing. They also have the advantage of an additional day of rest from that first game in a long while over a team that just played last night.

Prospects: Mikhail Sergachev (D-WSR), Jeremiah Addison (F-WSR)

Game starts at 7:00 PM EDT / 4:00 PM PDT
