I looked at the stats for the season and I saw that Wheeling and Toledo played eachother 13 times this season. THIRTEEN times?!?!? WTF, seriously...

The Nailers played every team in their division 12 or 13 times due to travel. Hopefully with Cincinnati coming into the league again next year, we will play each team less. I would like to see more of the Southern teams, but due to travel expenses, that is unlikely.

The extreme division/conference play is rediculas. Even 6 times is pushing it. 13 is just F'd in the head!

The record for Wheeling was 5-7-1, so they technically lost the series.

Toledo outscored them 38-20 (not including shootout). Toledo had the better powerplay 14.3% to 11.2%. Toldeo outshot Wheeling 402 to 350.

Between the two teems there was 616 PIMs for 47.4 a game, so they were apparently quite lively.
