Guelph has lost three in a row and has fallen three points behind Erie for 7th in the Western Conference. They’re comfortably in the playoffs right now, nine points up on Sarnia.

Schemitsch had his brief point streak snapped at two games, but that's not all that was broken. A Bayshore Broadcasting report states Schemitsch went down with what's being called a broken arm or wrist. He'll miss the next 6-8 weeks of play. Predators 2009 first rounder Ryan Ellis was First Star in a losing effort, with a goal and three assists for Windsor. Spits goalie Jack Campbell, a Stars first rounder in 2010, was pulled after giving up three goals in 18 minutes. Campbell’s record is 17-11-1-2. He has a 3.85 GAA and .884 save percentage on the year.
