It will be another tough opponent for the Mission City Outlaws tonight when they make their way to the Minoru Arena in Richmond to take on the red hot Sockeyes.
The Outlaws are coming off a loss to the Langley Knights last Saturday at the MLC which saw Mission City give up 4 straight goals to the Knights after jumping out to a 2 goal lead early on in the contest. The Sockeyes suffered a OT loss on Saturday as well at the hands of the North Van Wolf Pack and you know they will want to bounce back in a big way tonight.
The offensive punch that we witnessed from the Outlaws early on this season hasn`t been nearly as prevalent the last while due to the fact that the teams leading point getters have had to nurse some minor bumps and bruises but those players are starting to find their groove once again which is going to be needed tonight against a team like Richmond that doesn`t give up too many scoring chances.
Who to watch for:
Mission City – Justin Bowerman – Bowerman is 2nd in rookie scoring this season with 2 goals for 5 points but it`s the play away from the puck that has been most noticeable.
Richmond – Daniel Oakley – Oakley had a 3 point night against the Outlaws the last time these teams met. Daniel also sits third in scoring on the Sockeyes with 23 points.
As tall of a hill it may look like to climb for the Outlaws tonight one thing can`t be overlooked and that is how well this team has played away from the MLC this season. No reason to think they can`t have another strong showing tonight and get back in the win column.
