Tonight’s Matchup: vs Freeze: Swan Valley will need a better performance tonight from their entire lineup if they look to win back-to-back games on home ice. The Stampeders never really showed up until the third period last night, which did prove to be enough, but they played with fire for nearly 50 minutes of the game. Last night was the first time in their past nine games that the Stampeders didn’t give up 40 plus shots on goal.
Last Game: 5-4 OT win over Selkirk: Swan Valley had a tough time finding any rhythm on home ice last night against the Steelers. The Stampeders trailed for a good portion of the game, and were outplayed in the first period. Local product Trey Sauder had himself a night, scoring one goal and adding three assists in a come-from-behind overtime win. If fans left early, they missed out on an epic come-back and an overtime thriller. The Stampeders trailed 4-2 with 9:29 left in the third period. (Insert inspirational music here) – Justin Keck was sent in all alone, driving the net and tucked home his 10th of the year with just over three and a half minutes to play. Steven Arp jumped on the ice after teammate Myles Mason’s helmet popped off and he had to return to the bench. Arp went straight to the net and smacked home his third of the year, tying the game with 39 seconds left, forcing overtime. Warren Marcotte engaged his superman cape and had not one, but three chances to end the game on the same play and he did just that, scoring his third of the year to claim victory Friday night.

Tonight’s Matchup: vs Swan: Despite their record, Winnipeg has a solid young team and makes you earn every inch on the ice. They might be last place in the MGEU East Division but they have a lethal power play that sits 6th in the league. Something the Stampeders have done lots of lately is sat in the penalty box. This is a perfect mix for a Saturday night tilt at the Centennial Arena.
Last Game: 5-2 Loss to OCN: The OCN Blizzard scored early and often as they took down the Freeze 5-2 last night at the Gordon Lathlin Memorial Centre in OCN. Chase Hamm stopped 16/18 shots he face in the win.
