Showdown in Windsor: Hall vs. Skinner

When the Kitchener Rangers took a 3-0 lead in the conference final series against the favored Windsor Spitfires, it was the Jeff Skinner show, as the diminutive scorer outshined his marquee counterpart Taylor Hall.

Since then, Hall and company have clawed their way back to a 3-3 tie with a Game 7 today for all the marbles and a trip to the OHL finals. The winner of this series will likely represent the OHL at the Memorial Cup tourney, as the Rangers and Spits have shown themselves to be the class of the league.

On paper, Windsor has the edge in talent and they certainly have all the momentum. Can Skinner will his plucky Rangers club to an upset?

We'll know the answer tonight.
