CAPITAL RIVALRY CONTINUES TUESDAY IN M-HOCKEY

OTTAWA, Ont. - Matthieu Methot, with Ottawa's hottest hockey stick, is not looking for a cool-down.

"I don't want to put a hex on things," said the Gee-Gees rookie left wing Monday after scoring twice in a pair of men's hockey weekend wins.

Methot opened with the power play goal in Saturday's 3-2 home win over Brock and scored the power play winner Sunday with less than one second left in overtime for a 4-3 win over Guelph.

"It seems like we have partly found our identity," he said.

The Gee-Gees collective character will again be tested Tue., Jan. 13 at 7 p.m. when uOttawa (8-6-3) puts a two-game win streak on the line against the Carleton Ravens (10-8-2), who are three points ahead in the OUA Far East ahead of the third head-to-head meeting of the season.

Game tickets are two dollars as part of Toonie Tuesdays.

The teams split two games this season - the Ravens won 5-2 at the Sports Complex in October before a 3-0 Gee-Gees road win at the Carleton Ice House December 2. Methot, uOttawa's Male Athlete of the Week, tapped the Ravens for two goals in the last game.

The Ottawa native who played junior hockey with the 67s has a Gee-Gee-leading 13 goals in 17 games in his first year of university hockey.

"I know Carleton takes these games just as seriously as we do," said Methot.

Second-year goaltender Riley Whitlock (8-3, 2.89 GAA) will start for the Gee-Gees, who enter the game in fourth place in the five-team division.

"Different mentality after two victories in a row," said Whitlock.
