The Spitfires have their work cut out for them, as they head to Oshawa tonight.

The Generals are currently ranked first in the entire CHL, while Windsor is still three points back of a playoff sport in the OHL’s Western Conference.

Assistant Coach Bob Jones says when you’re playing a team of Oshawa’s calibre, there aren’t many weaknesses to pick on. “You’ve got to have some fear in your belly that you’re not going to get embarrassed,” he explains.  “Hopefully you have a strong performance by your goaltender, to start with, and then collectively everyone else has to follow suit.”

The Spits gave up four goals in the third period Thursday night, losing 7-5 at home against Owen Sound.

Puck drop is set for 7:35pm.
