Tonight’s Matchup: vs the Blizzard: The Stampeders are riding a four-game point streak into tonight’s contest in OCN. Swan Valley will be looking to do something they haven’t been able to do this season, beat the OCN Blizzard. Look for Swan Valley to play a tight-checking game tonight and find a way to get back in the win column on the road.
Last Game: 3-2 OT Loss to Selkirk: The Stampeders had a tough time finding offence through 40 minutes of play Saturday night, but it wasn’t for a lack of trying. Swan Valley was able to break through, tying the game early in the third period, scoring back-to-back goals. Penalty trouble cost the Stamps Saturday night, taking a double minor at the end of the third period, which Lucas Brennan scored on to win the game and snapped the Stampeders’ win streak at three games.
