Canadian Juniors Playoff Update

As per BSBer Rick in Boston:

Evgeny Grachev’s Battalion were shelled 10-1 by the Windsor Spitfires in Game 1 of the OHL Finals. Grachev was a -2 on the night according to the OHL’s scoresheet.

Game 2 will be Friday. According to the Battalion’s website, Grachev started the game skating on Cody Hodgson’s line – Hodgson is one of Vancouver’s top prospects and the #10 overall selection in the 2008 draft.

Looks like it wasn’t just Grachev who had a rough night. Losing 10-1 in the Finals is embarrassing. Let’s hope he answers back in Game 2.

As for Tysen Dowzak, Game 1 in the WHL Finals is tomorrow.
