No rest for the weary. Fresh off the heels of their huge 5-4 overtime road victory against the first place Brandon Wheat Kings, the Blades bussed home through the night, and will now play host to the visiting Moose Jaw Warriors. The boys in blue say they’re ready for the challenge.
“Some guys are a little groggy after the late game and the bus” said Ryan Coghlan, who scored his first goal of the season against Brandon. “But even with that, we’re ready. Had a good meeting this morning, got a little sweat on with a bike ride, and we’re good to go”.
The Blades are starting to play with confidence – after rallying from several goals down against the Broncos on Saturday, the Blades ultimately fell in overtime, gaining a hard earned point. They followed that up with a big win in Brandon.
“We’re a meat and potatoes kind of team, and we’re feeling good now. We work hard, we’re confident, good to go”.
“We need to carry over that momentum from last night” added Coach Bob Woods. “Moose Jaw is a team in our division we’re trying to catch. We had success against them last time, we can’t afford to turn the puck over to them, and we just need to try expose their weaknesses”.
The Blades have scored 12 goals in their past two games, and Woods hopes the boys can keep that offensive game going against the Warriors. The Blades will have Thursday off, before hosting Brandon on Friday, and travelling to Moose Jaw for a rematch on Saturday.
