For the second time in just over a week the Mission City Outlaws will take on the Abbotsford Pilots but this time it’s at the MSA Arena in Abbotsford.
The Outlaws are coming off another tough loss last night against the Ridge Meadows Flames at the Mission Leisure Centre which saw the Flames defeat the Outlaws by a final score of 3-2. Mission City will be looking to bounce back and in a big way tonight against the Pilots.
The season series between the Outlaws and the Pilots is 1-1-1 so something has to give tonight. The Outlaws would love to get some separation badly from the last place Port Moody Panthers. Mission City still have 3 games in hand over the Panthers and the perfect way to go into the Christmas break would be to get back in the win column.
The Pilots have also had their struggles stringing wins together lately with just 1 win in their last 6 games and that win came against the Mission City Outlaws last Thursday night at the MLC in a 4-3 double OT victory.
Who to watch for:
Mission City – Kolby Steen – Steen led all Outlaws last night in scoring chances with 6 shots on net. Look for him to do much of the same tonight against the Pilots as he has 3 points in the 3 meetings this season.
Abbotsford – Bradley Parker – Parker had a goal and an assist against the Outlaws on Dec. 12th and also had first star honors that night as well. Look for him to be a big contributing factor for his team tonight.
Not to sound too much like a broken record but it really would be nice for the Outlaws to pull out a win tonight and head into the break with a huge confidence booster type game.
Puck drop is 7:30 PM from the MSA Arena in Abbotsford and as always you can listen for FREE on our MixLR.com channel beginning with the pre game show at 7:20 PM.
As for now you’re up to date. See you at the rink.
