Musquodoboit Har­bour.

But the Jets will be in tough. East­ern Shore fin­ished the 200910 sea­son with a 24-4-0 record for 48 points to fin­ish first in the league and Cen­tral Divi­sion stand­ings. New Water­ford placed fourth in the divi­sion with a 10-171 mark

The Mariners also en­ter the se­ries with the league’s top power play and penalty kill, which op­er­ates at an ef­fi­cient 37.6 per cent and 91.5 per cent, re­spec­tively. East­ern Shore won all four games of the sea­son se­ries, with the league’s top two scor­ers, Ryan Mor­ris and Kyle Miller, fill­ing the score­sheet. Mor­ris recorded 20 points, while Miller posted 13.

“Dis­ci­pline for us, that’s go­ing to be the key for sure,” said Nose­wor­thy. “I know the last game we played, it was a 10-6 fi­nal and they had six power-play goals. They have two play­ers, Ryan Mor­ris and Kyle Miller, who are go­ing to be our fo­cus. We shut them down, I think we’ll be OK be­cause their of­fence re­volves around those two play­ers.”

Nose­wor­thy said he’ll be looking to the likes of Matt MacLeod and Shane Au­coin, cap­tain Dar­rell Jen­nex and late ad­di­tion Johnny MacLeod up front. On de­fence, Daniel Howie, Leo Stevens and David Roach will set­tle things down.

“ We def­i­nitely need to get the split, come home and try to get the two games at home,” said Nose­wor­thy.

Game 3 and Game 4 will be played at the New Water­ford and District Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, Feb. 19-20, with 7:30 p.m. starts for each game. If nec­es­sary, Game 5 will be played in Musquodoboit Har­bour, Sun­day, Feb. 21, at 1 p.m.

Jeremy Piovesan is the Cape Bre­ton Post sports depart­ment’s pick as ath­lete of the week.
