Janesville Visits Johnstown For First and Only Time This Season

We're in the last month of the 2013-2014 NAHL regular season, and all four spots in the north division are up for grabs going into the playoffs.

For the first time this season the Tomahawks will faceoff against the Janesville Jets at the War Memorial arena. This weekend is the second to last time Johnstown will home this year.

Janesville, though they play in the north division, Johnstown doesn't play them very often. They'll play each other again in two weeks, in Janesville. Last season the two teams played four times, as well.

Janesville is five points behind Johnstown in the standings and comes into the weekend with a record of 24-23-3. Currently, the Jets are on a two game winning streak after sweeping the Springfield Jr. Blues last weekend.

With only a few games remaining this season vs teams all below Johnstown in the standings, the Tomahawks must find ways to win games or may find themselves out of a playoff spot.

Last season Johnstown finished the season with 27 wins. This year the Tomahawks have 26. Hopefully, at the end of this weekend Johnstown will pick up two more wins.

Janesville is a pretty young team only have two '93 birth year players, compared to Johnstown's seven.

Since the two teams are facing each other for the first time this season, we'll just take a look at the player's overall season stats.

Lost both games and scored a total of one goal. 50% effort Friday night, and maybe 70% effort Saturday night. We've seen this all before during the Chiefs' years. This team has quit. They are going through the motions, just waiting for the season to end. There seems to be some serious problems in their locker room.
