The Swan Valley Stampeders head south for their second last meeting of the regular season with the Virden Oil Capitals. The two teams are set to take the ice at Tundra Oil & Gas Place at 7:30p.m this evening.
Swan Valley will need to find a way to bring home points in tonight’s game, as the West Division is a mess and every point counts heading down the final stretch and into the playoffs. Swan Valley has had some great success this season, but winning one, losing one, could spell disaster if the team doesn’t get on a bit of a run over the next two weeks, to close out the season.
Swan Valley and Virden have each won three games apiece and the teams are set to play their final two games against one another in a home-and-home series starting tonight in Virden and finishing Saturday in Swan River.
Head Coach and General Manager Barry Wolff will be going with the same lineup as last Saturday, which saw his team put up some serious offence in a 5-1 win. Scratched tonight are Ethan Matchim, Lare Pahtayken and Darius Makse. Kobe Grant is expected to get the start in net.
