With seven of a possible 12 points so far on their current road trip, the Moose Jaw Warriors are making preparations for their final game against the BC Division coming up on Tuesday in Prince George.
The tribe is coming off an impressive 3-2 shootout win over the Kamloops Blazers on Saturday and second year forward Tanner Eberle says that’s given them some confidence at the tail end of their trip.
“The boys are pretty happy right now, we’re playing pretty good hockey and just beat the first place team in the league,” said Eberle. “We’re feeling pretty confident but can’t get ahead of ourselves because we still have one game to finish up on the road and can’t look ahead.”
Moose Jaw has posted wins over Kamloops, Victoria, and Vancouver; they lost regulation to Edmonton and Kelowna; and they fell in a shootout to Red Deer.
The team is skating on Monday in Kamloops before loading up the bus and embarking on the six hour ride to Northern BC for their road trip finale against the Cougars.
Eberle says they have to be focused and ready for this battle with the Cougars, “We definitely have to be ready to go against Prince George; we can’t be thinking that it’s going to be a cake walk. Obviously the guys are tired but we have to make sure we’re going on all cylinders (Tuesday).”
Tuesday game is the only meeting of the season between the Warriors and Cougars, last year Moose Jaw blanked the Cougars 6-0 at Mosaic Place. In the last five years they’ve posted a 3-1-1 record against Prince George; however they are winless on the road during that time.
After this game they’ll travel 18 hours and arrive back in the Friendly City Wednesday afternoon, they’ll return to action on the weekend with home games against Red Deer and Spokane Friday and Saturday.
