The tides have turned. Peter Horachek is a genius. Tyler Bozak is going to come from behind and win the Rocket Richard in the final games. G-Man is going to finish top ten in team plus/minus. Everything is going according to plan.

Okay, maybe that's a stretch. Though, technically, Garret Gamble is actually 6th in team plus/minus right now. Anyway, today is Monday, which means its time to answer some mailbag questions!

Over the years, the QEW rivalry has done the see-saw from thrilling to boring, depending on who punched who and how many of the games had come in the prior weeks.

With the Bulldogs moving to St. John’s at the end of this year, today marked the last time that the two teams will face each other. But with the last playoff spot in the balance, the stakes haven’t ever been higher.
