Now on an eight game
scoring streak, Corey Hoffman has a commanding lead in team scoring. Up
to this weekend he was close with Adam Brubacher, but has managed to pull away
with four points in the last two games, after having a productive weekend last
week as well.
Last season Liam
Blackburn was one of the top producers in the league, and so far he he’s
right back at it with 14 points in 12 games. The ’96 New Hampshire committed
player had one assist last night against the Silverbacks, and will look to
crack the score sheet once again.
In the Standings:
Despite going 0-2 so far
this weekend, the Spruce Kings haven’t been passed by the Surrey Eagles. Their
Interior rival are one point back, and won’t play until Tuesday when they host
the Langley Rivermen. With a win tonight they can give themselves some
breathing room, which will be important as Surrey will have the game in hand
following tonight’s matchup.
The Warriors only have
one win in their last four, but that one win was a 3-0 shutout against the
powerhouse Powell River Kings. They’re 4th in the Interior, but have
two games in hand over Vernon who is one point ahead of them.
Special Teams Battle:
Prince George has been
improving on the PK, but they’re up for a challenge against West Kelowna. The
warriors have the 2nd best power play in the league, and scored
twice on six chances last night against Salmon Arm. Prince George has had a
much improved power play lately, and a big part of that is Bryan Basilico. He
has three goals in seven games with the team, and all of those goals have been
on the man advantage. The Warriors have a decent penalty kill at 11th
in the league, so Prince George will look to capitalize on any power plays they
can muster up.
