I've always been a fan of teams that take their foot off the pedal in the 3rd period of a blowout. If the team that is losing is taking liberties and cheap shots, you make them pay on the powerplay.

Wellington is a team who rolls 4 lines in every game, but in their most recent matchup with Peterborough you could tell there was no need to pile on against a team that is having struggles. Wellington put up 9 shots in the 3rd period. Always nice to see the 3rd and 4th liners getting more ice.

With the playoffs coming up very soon, I think that these games give a team an opportunity to practice some things in game that you want to do in the playoffs. There aren't going to be very many 8-1 games and a lot more 2-1, 3-2 games.

It will be interesting to see how Whitby responds after another blowout win. After an 11-1 drubbing of Pickering, they played their worst game against Wellington in a game they needed to win. Fortunately Whitby has a favourable end to their season so it could be interesting to see what happens when playoffs come around
