Head Coach Gary Alexander says that the team will be looking for a better effort at the start of the game compared Wednesday’s lackluster win over Dawson Creek.
“We’re hoping to have a big game in Grande Prairie; a little more jump to their start than they had on Wednesday night,” he explains. “We’re still a little bit depleted in ranks with a suspension or two and one body or so I don’t know if they’ll be back or not yet.”
Alexander acknowledges that the team may have a bit of a struggle on their hands come Saturday as some players will be of the active roster for the game because of suspensions or just not being able to make the trip.
“I think we’re fairly confident that we can compete with them when we have a full team. We’re a little undermanned so they may be a keyed up a little bit if they come prepared to play regardless of what we have in the lineup.” Alexander says.
Tomorrow’s game can be heard live on Moose FM with the pregame show at 8:15 p.m., and the opening faceoff at 8:30.
