Week 6 of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League wasn't a kind one to the Portage Terriers.

The Dogs finished 0-2-1 including back-to-back home losses to the OCN Blizzard, the former coming by way of the shootout, and as a result have dropped three places to sixth in the league's Power Rankings.

The Flyers and Pistons remain No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, while OCN jumped up from fourth to third. Selkirk and Virden each jumped a spot to No. 4 and No. 5 to round out the top five.

Steinbach (10) and Winkler (15) were the only MJHL teams to crack the nation's top 20, while OCN was named as an honourable mention in the Canadian Junior Hockey League's weekly assessment.

The Terriers are back in action with a pair of weekend home games, beginning Friday against Selkirk before wrapping up Sunday evening against the Blues.
