For the first time in the seven game season series, a game between the Rivermen and Spruce Kings will be played at the Prince George Coliseum. The Riv have played host for the first four games and have won every match-up thus far outscoring them a total of 21-3.
The Riv are coming off a weekend where they earned three out of a possible four points and feel good going into this week’s games.
“We obviously wanted to come out of last week with all four points, but it was a tough game against Nanaimo and will take the three points. I felt like we played a lot better compared to the week prior on the island and hopefully we can continue to play well,” said leading goal scorer Justin Fregona.
The Rivermen skate into the Northern Capital of BC with a 23-17-1-1 record for 48 points, which puts them third in the Mainland Division. The Spruce Kings are fifth with an 11-30-2-1 clip for 25 points.
“Despite the success we have had against PG this year, we aren’t looking past them at all. This league is too good and anyone can beat anyone on any given night. From what I hear, their arena is smaller in size and they play teams tough in it, so we will have to be ready to go from the drop of the puck,” continued Fregona.
The puck drops at 7:00pm tonight (as will tomorrow’s game) at the Prince George Coliseum. All games can be seen live on www.fasthockey.com.
