MJHL Power Rankings – Week 24

March 3, 2015


MJHL Power Rankings for March 2nd

Portage Terriers(53-3-4) (Last Week: 2nd ) – Portage may have already clinched first in the standings a couple months ago, but they picked up a big win in Steinbach last week. They beat the Pistons 2-0 and seem to be back on track after a bit of a bumpy stretch in February. The Terriers conclude the regular season on the top of the CJHL Rankings.
Schedule this week: Regular season complete

Steinbach Pistons(38-14-7) (Last Week: 1st) – A loss at home to Portage is just a minor blemish to the Pistons considering the way they’ve been playing. Steinbach already has the tiebreaker for second, so their game Tuesday in Virden is a meaningless one. Steinbach is an Honourable Mention on this week’s CJHL Top 20.
Schedule this week: vs Virden on Tuesday

Winnipeg Blues(38-15-7) (Last Week: 3rd) – Winnipeg finds themselves in third place with their 2014-15 schedule completed. The Blues enter the post season with wins in four of their last five. Winnipeg is an Honourable Mention on this week’s CJHL Top 20.
Schedule this week: Regular season complete

Winkler FlyersWinkler Flyers (31-16-12) (Last Week: 4th) – A win and a loss last week for the Flyers was good enough to clinch fourth in the MJHL. Winkler has won two of their last three going into their final game of the season Tuesday.
Schedule this week: @ Selkirk on Tuesday

Virden Oil Capitals(30-19-10) (Last Week: 5th) – The Virden Oil Capitals had a shot at catching the Winkler Flyers for fourth in the standings, but could never really get anything going. They’ll meet the Flyers in Winkler for game one of their series next week, but first they’re in Steinbach to close out the regular season Tuesday.
Schedule this week: @ Steinbach on Tuesday

Swan Valley Stampeders(27-26-6) (Last Week: 6th) – Swan Valley is a team that has a very meaningful game on Tuesday. A win will clinch them sixth in the standings, a regulation loss combined with a Selkirk win in Winkler would mean the Steelers would pop up to sixth and the Stampeders would slip to seventh.
Schedule this week: @ Neepawa on Tuesday

Selkirk Steelers(28-29-2) (Last Week: 7th) – Selkirk is in a must win situation Tuesday when they host the Winkler Flyers. The Steelers must win at home and get some help from Neepawa in order to catch and pass Swan Valley for sixth in the standings.
Schedule this week: vs Winkler on Tuesday

Waywayseecappo Wolverines(24-31-5) (Last Week: 9th) – Waywayseecappo went on a run to close out the regular season, they jumped up from tenth to eighth in the standings and will have home ice in their best of three Survivor Series against the Dauphin Kings.
Schedule this week: Regular season complete

Dauphin Kings(23-31-6) (Last Week: 8th) – Two straight losses for the Kings as they head into the post season. Their Survivor Series with Wayway should be a very interesting one, the two teams went 3-2-1 against each other this season.
Schedule this week: Regular season complete

OCN Blizzard(20-35-5) (Last Week: 10th) The OCN Blizzard aren’t quite sure of their opponent for the Survivor Series just yet, but they do know they’ll start the post season on the road. OCN concluded their season with wins in two of their last three.
Schedule this week: Regular season complete

Neepawa Natives(14-41-2) (Last Week: 10th) –The Neepawa Natives will try and play the spoiler roll on Tuesday for their final regular season home game. They’ll host the Swan Valley Stampeders. A regulation win could put a dent in the Stampeders hopes to finish sixth and avoid the Survivor Series.
