Huskies back at it after well earned break

The Huskies get back at it today after a well earned couple of days off. The Pups are on home ice for game 3 of their NWJHL Championship series against the Whitecourt Wolverines. The Wolverines took advantage of a tired hockey team over the weekend and capitalized on some defensive breakdowns to win both games by a wide score despite both games being fairly even in terms of scoring chances. The Huskies played well but weren't able to bury some chances.

So they hit the home ice tonight in search of their first win in the series in a building where they are fairly dominant. They have only lost 4 times on the NPA ice all season including the playoffs but 2 of those losses are at the hands of the Wolverines. Zack Blain will have to continue to play well in net and I am sure he will. The second line got going in game 2 and they will have to continue to be good. Fast, Norris and MacKinnon have the ability to score in bunches and if they can score a couple times and the top line can pop a couple home then the Huskies will be in good shape. The D men need to limit Whitecourt scoring chances and overall the team needs to find a way to slow Whitecourt down as they are lightning fast through the neutral zone.

A big crowd will help the Huskies as well so get down to the NPA tonight at 8pm.
