BRANTFORD, ON- The Brantford 99ers head south of the border for their last time this season, facing off against the Buffalo Jr. Sabres for the 4th and final time.
These 2 teams last met just a mere 6 days ago in Brantford where Buffalo prevailed by a score of 4-2. Goaltender Dylan Grover got the win for the Sabres, but has since been acquired by the 99ers. It is unknown whether or not he will get the start against his former team. Defenseman Cole Smith was dealt to the Sabres in the Grover trade and will play his 2nd game in a Buffalo jersey tonight.
The 99ers come off of a 4-2 win on the road over the East Conference Markham Royals on Friday night, with Aaron Andrade scoring his 1st goal with the team in his 99ers debut. Brantford improved to a 16-21-0-1 record for 33 points, just 5 points shy of a playoff spot.
The Jr. Sabres are fresh off a comeback victory over the Georgetown Raiders on Sunday, trailing 2-0 early but eventually prevailing 5-3. Buffalo now sits 4th in the West with a 22-14-0-2 record for 46 points.
