The second round of the Great Lakes Junior C playoffs kicks off tonight.
The #1 ranked Essex 73's host the 6th seeded Dresden Kings at 7pm.
Essex Head Coach Gil Langlois says after ten days off, the players might be a little rusty.
"If we can come out of the first ten minutes with some speed and some tempo we should be okay," says Langlois. "But no question being off this long, you're always a little bit nervous when you start that first game."
Elsewhere, the Blenheim Blades travel to Amherstburg to take on the Admirals in Game 1 of that series. Puck drop is set for 7pm.
