Tonight’s Matchup: vs the Nighthawks: The Stampeders found a way to break out of their recent six game losing streak, defeating the Steelers 7-2. The Stamps’ will need to find that same success from their road win last night if they want two points tonight. The Nighthawks are a hard-nosed team to play against and can burry you on the power play. Swan will need to stay out of the penalty box and play a full 60 minutes.
Last Game: 7-2 win over Selkirk: The Stampeders snapped their six game losing streak with a 7-2 win over the Steelers Friday night. Swan Valley used two first period goals, four in the second period and one in the third to take down the Steelers on the road.
