Tonight’s Matchup: vs the Wolverines: The Stampeders have now lost four in a row, falling to fourth in the MGEU West Division standings. Swan Valley has taken two nights off and as a result has fallen four spots in the standings. The Stamp’s will need a full team effort if they look to break out of their recent funk. Staying out of the penalty box is key and strong goaltending will also be needed tonight. It’s going to be an all-out dog fight in the standings until the end of the year. Four points separate first to fifth in the tightly compacted West Division. #SaddleUp
