Spitfires Take Aim at Firebirds

Thursday's game against the Flint Firebirds is critically important for the Windsor Spitfires.

In a close battle to hang on to the final playoff spot in the OHL West Division, Head Coach Trevor Letowski knows the points are critical.

"There's just so many moving parts right now in the playoff picture, that we just don't want to risk anything," he says. "We just have to take care of what we can and that's winning that hockey game so all of our focus this week is going into this game"

There is a temptation to watch the scoreboard, Letowski adds but says they need to stay on point, especially after the win in the Soo.

"It was so huge so obviously the guys felt good about themselves and now I mean we've known for a long time that we're in a battle and now it's right to the very end and we're still in it,
 he says, adding "I think that game will help us with our confidence."

The pre-game show with Manny Paiva and Steve Bell can be heard on AM800 starting at 6:30 followed by puck drop at 7:05pm.
