When the Outlaws faithful last saw their favorite team at the MLC back on December 17th, they witnessed their team win it’s fourth straight on home ice thanks to a 4-2 victory over the Pack.
Since then, the goals have been few and the wins even fewer. The team has struggled to find the back of the net in a pair of losses to the Wolf Pack, and close defeats at the hands of the Sockeyes and Panthers.
In fact, it’s been rugged winger Jacob Dorey who’s been the most proficient at lighting the lamp of late, scoring the lone goal in each of the past two games.
If recent history repeats itself, the Outlaws may keep the goal light as bright as Rudolf’s nose on Saturday. They’ve scored seven goals in all three meetings with the Knights this season. However, there is a tale of caution for the hosts.
A lackluster performance against a team that has a singular point in 32 games could be detrimental to the Outlaws psyche heading into a stretch where confidence needs to be their biggest ally heading into the post season.
Surrey hasn’t had a lot to cheer about this year, but the play of rookie Jin Woo Lee has been a bright spot. He’s the lone Knight to be in double digits thanks to team mates like Nathan McCarnan and Nicolas Bizzutto being dealt to teams like Mission.
Puck drops at 6:45.
We will also have some new members of the broadcast team added as we head into the playoffs.
