But Blizzard and Growlers won’t have an actual face-to-face meeting for six weeks

There isn’t much to choose between the top two teams in the provincial major midget hockey league, but if there is to be any future separation between the East Coast Blizzard and Pinnacle Growlers, it’s not going to happen as the result of head-to-head games.

At least not for a while; the two metro-based teams, each having registered 21 points to date, won’t have their next head-to-head meeting until Dec. 5.

The Blizzard (10-1-1) are officially in first place, having played one less game than the Growlers (10-2-1). East Coast gained that position with a sweep of the Tri-Pen Osprey (5-6-1) last weekend, while the Growlers took their turn being idle. With five teams in the league — the Western Kings (4-7-1) and first-year Central Impact (1-8-2) are the others —  it is normal for one team not to have any games in a particular week.
