The London Knights and Niagara IceDogs faced off Thursday night in Game 1 of the Ontario Hockey League final.
The IceDogs were considered one of the favourites to be in the final when the season began. Last year, they were much like the Knights this year -- a young team with plenty of talent.
The Knights were expected to be competitive but many said they were a year away still.
The IceDogs didn't start like a team ready to win an OHL title. They began the season in a bit of a mess.
This was the year the IceDogs targeted as the year they were going to make a push for the title.
Reporters from the the London Free Press and St. Catharines Standard hosted a live chat for Game 1 of the series.
Here's what they had to say.
