This is the final weekend of the regular season in the CCHL2. The Glens are booked to have one last road game on Sunday night in Arnprior before they look towards what they hope will be a lengthy playoff run.
As we reported in The Glengarry News' Feb. 21 issue, the Glens are in the driver's seat when it comes to avoiding having to play a wildcard game, maintaining a one-point lead for this place in the division standings, ahead of the Ottawa West Golden Knights, who have just one game remaining.
