Tonight the Mission City Outlaws will be looking to carry the momentum from Tuesday nights game against the Delta Ice Hawks and see if they can transfer it into a win on home ice.
The Outlaws are coming off the first victory at home last Thursday night over the Ridge Meadows Flames. One would have to assume that this team is on the verge of making a statement in the PJHL.
This will be the second meeting of the season between the Outlaws and the Wolf Pack. The last time these 2 teams met was at the Harry Jerome Recreation Centre in North Vancouver back on September 28 and even though the Outlaws brought forth a good effort in a losing cause, they were still trying to figure out the pieces of the puzzle for this years squad.
The Outlaws sit in 4th in the Harold Brittain Conference, just 2 points behind the Ridge Meadows Flames. The North Van Wolf Pack sit in 4th place in the very tough Tom Shaw Conference with a record of 6-4-0-1 for 13 points.
Who to watch for:
Mission City – Cam Bertsch – Even though the team did great on Tuesday night, Bertsch was not happy with the quality of shots coming off his stick. Good players, like Bertsch, find ways to turn it around quickly and tonight is going to be that night.
North Vancouver – Spencer Quon – Quon was a huge thorn in the side of the Outlaws the last time these 2 teams met and the Outlaws will have to pay close attention to the leading scorer on the Wolf Pack.
Since the season is already past the quarter mark, each game now becomes crucial in making a push for a playoff spot and that will be no different tonight. Not saying to push the panic button, but putting in solid efforts night after night is going to be key.
