The Muskrats continue to be the top team in the league with two big wins in their last two games, in which they scored a total of 18 goals. Lord Willington continues to lead the league in assists while Adam Grare's GAA's of 2.00 has made it difficult for the rest of the league to beat the Muskrats.
The Stingrays remain near the top of the standings, battling it out with the Muskrats. As is usually the case, they haven't been scoring many goals, but in the process of posting a miniscule GAA, Kyle Daloisio gives this team a great chance to win in every game.
3. Ice Men
The Ice Men have finally started playing to their full potential now that Ilya Yavtuhovich has started to score some goals to complement Jon Boxer's production. They grabbed a win over the Pterodactyls with a couple of late goals, and followed it up with a 5-1 win over the Rubber Duckies. If they can keep this up, they may no longer be the punching bag of the league.
In their two games during the past two weeks, the Phantoms lost to the Rubber Duckies in a high-scoring 10-8 slugfest, but then upset the Stingrays by scoring six goals, which is more than triple the amount Stingray's goaltender Kyle Daloisio normally gives up. If they can keep this play up, they could be one of the top teams in the league once Paul Doran finishes recovering from surgery.
The Vudoos won big over the Rubber Duckies, but then fell to the Stingrays. While they have hovered around .500 all season, they have shown signs of being a top team thanks largely to Wes Dorey who leads the league in points and Dan Poreda who is not far behind.
The Pterodactyls continue to lack offense, but have broken even in their four games over the past two weeks. They lost a disappointing one to the Ice Men in the last minute, but then beat Freddy's in a shootout after tying the score in the last minute, and then shut out the Rubber Duckies. They gave up nine goals in a loss to the Muskrats afterwards though. Like the Vudoos, they continue to win and lose games at approximately the same rate.
7. Rubber Duckies
The Rubber Duckies snapped a four game losing streak when they took down the Phantoms, but then scored only one goal in their next two games against the Pterodactyls and Ice Men. They are now tied with the Ice Men for seventh, but are technically in last place as a result of the PIMs tiebreaker; their 105 leads the league by 16.
8. Freddy's HC
Freddy's HC lost both games this fortnight. They were blown out 9-1 by the Muskrats, and then squandered a late lead to the Pterodactyls before falling in a shootout. They remain in third place, but they will need to break out of this slump if they are to stay that high.
The Archers still have not been beaten in regulation, and lately have been producing more goals than before. In their two games that took place these past two weeks, they put up a total of 19 goals as Dan Poreda has started to run away with the league lead in goals.
While the Archers have been at or near the top of the standings all season long, the Flames are in the midst of a five game winning streak that has propeled them right up there with the Archers. In their last two games, they nearly shut out the Biohazards and took down a very strong Green Brook Berets team.
3. Green Brook Berets
This past fortnight, the Berets crushed the Pterodactyls 7-0 but then saw their winning streak end when they were bested by the Flames. However, even though Pat Perez continues to decline and many fans have clamored for him to retire soon rather than hang around as a mere shadow of his former self like Brett Favre, George Plaskota remains in his prime and continues to give this team a chance to beat anybody in the league.
4. SHI Spitfires
The Spitfires are another team that is on the rise, having won three of their last four games. Menas Zion has been rock solid during this stretch as his GAA is now only second to Plaskota's. Nick Pawlyk continues to be a focal point of the SHI offense with newcomer Greg Owens complementing nicely.
The Pterodactyls are on the opposite end of the spectrum, having lost their last five games--three of them being shutouts. Of their next five games, two are against the powerful Archers, but two are against the Whalers, so they are hoping to snap their losing streak soon.
The Whalers have lost their six. One was a forfeit and in the other five they have only scored a total of eight goals. They will need to put up more goals to give goaltender Joe Lugara some help if this team is to break out of this slump.
The Biohazards got off to a great start this season and it looked like they would be battling it out with the Archers for first place throughout the season, but their season recently took a wrong turn and they have lost four of their last five games, including most recently a 12-0 clobbering at the hands of the Archers and a 6-1 loss to the Flames. They are hoping to get back on the right track soon though before they fall too far behind.
