Flyers and Huskies

Lots of hockey involving the FSJ teams tonight as the Flyers look to reestablish their dominance over Spirit River and the Huskies look to continue theirs over Peace River.

The Flyers lost game 2 of their series on Tuesday night in Spirit River due in large part to a hard fought game by Spirit River and the fact the Flyers were short benched having arrived with just 11 skaters. The Flyers tend to bring more guys out to their home games and will be looking to get back to the level of play they showed in game 1 of this series. Adam Loncan was dealing with some back issues towards the end of game 2 and it will be interesting to see if he plays tonight. Puck drops at the NPA at 8:30.

As for the Huskies, they continued their dominance over Peace River with a 9-2 victory in game 1. Goals cam from all over the ice including from 4th liner Kyle Porter who scored for the third game running. The top line also really produced for the Huskies and Zack Blain continued his strong play in net. The only issue for the Huskies and it is hard to find even one is that Steve Fast has not been lighting it up in the playoffs the way he did in the regular season. If the Huskies can get Fasty going they will have a real shot at making this a short series. The last time these two teams met in Peace River the game was a 7-1 blowout for the Huskies with Kole Norris getting injured late on a hit by Gerry Young. The Huskies players got into it with the Navigators crowd a little so it will be fun to see how big the crowd is and how it responds to the Huskies. Game 2 is tonight in Peace River live on moosefm. Puck drops at 8.
