The busy 3 game week for the Mission City Outlaws concludes tonight as the team welcomes last years runner ups, the Richmond Sockeyes to the Mission Leisure Centre.
Everything came together last night for the Mission City Outlaws out in Maple Ridge against the Flames that saw a 3rd period to remember for the Outlaws hockey club as they cruised to a 6-1 win.
The Outlaws are clicking in the goal scoring department as they sit in first for goals in the entire league with 30 early on this season.
The Sockeyes are on a roll picking right up where they left off last season. The coaching staff for Richmond, Judd Lambert and company, have got the attention of their players and the systems they play are accepted by the whole team. Richmond sits 2nd in the Tom Shaw Conference just 1 point behind the North Vancouver Wolf pack as the Sockeyes have a record of 4-1-0 for 8 points this 2014/15 campaign.
Who to watch for:
Mission City – Hayden Mowbray – Mowbray had a 2 goal performance last night in the win against the Flames. Hayden isn’t afraid to use his body to create more open space as well which is a key piece to the puzzle for the Mission City Outlaws.
Richmond – Troy Kaczynski – Kaczynski leads the league with an impressive 15 points on the season. The Outlaws will have to put some special attention to a guy like Troy who has really found his goal scoring touch after returning to the Sockeyes for his final year of Junior hockey.
The Outlaws have proven that they can give a real run against their opponents this season in the 6 games played so far keeping it close in tight games. They will have to stick to their game plan tonight and not stray into the hands of the opposition to have success.
