4:00 pm Guelph (6-8) at Brock (8-6) The Gryphs, who have been reeling losing 3 straight, desperately need a victory to maintain site of fourth place and a home playoff date. The Badgers must finish with a better record than Mac to grab second spot (Mac holds the tie-breaker).
8:00 pm Lakehead (1-14) at Western (7-7) The Mustangs look to move over .500 for the first time in 4 seasons with a home win. Western still has a chance to finish second with a strong surge to the end of the regular season.
8:00 pm McMaster (8-6) at Windsor (11-3) In the first meeting since the Marauders ended the Lancers season last March in the OUA West semi-finals, student (Chris Oliver) meets mentor (Joe Raso) in what is expected to be a capacity crowd at the St. Denis Center. Key matchups include Windsor's front line against Mac's fifth-year star Adam Steiner and Windsor's emerging 6'2" All-conference candidate Ryan Steer and Mac's 5'8" Martin Ajayi, the conference's leading scorer.
