I feel like I should create some sore of disclaimer about the lack of postings on this blog. I am sorry. I do intend to blog more but it doesn’t always work out that way. I am back now after the Christmas holiday period so hopefully more blogs will follow. The Huskies are back after the Christmas holidays as well and looking to get back to winning ways. It’s hard to believe that this team has lost 5 in a row. I can’t remember seeing a Huskies team drop that many on the trot. Not since I have been in FSJ anyway. It’s equally hard to believe that a team that was once 9-6 is now 2 games under the .500 mark. But here we are in the second weekend of the new year and the Huskies have a huge 3 days ahead.
It starts on Friday against Dawson Creek and finishes with Beaverlodge on Sunday. There is also the matter of a game with Sexsmith sandwiched in between those matchups. Three straight games on home ice against teams right around the Pups in the standings. Yeah, it’s a huge weekend alright. Fort St John surrently sits in 5th place in the NWJHL but they do have games in hand on Dawson Creek in the battle for 4th. The problem with games in hand is you have to win them. And the Huskies haven’t been winning a lot lately. They also have a three game weekend, all on the road, next weekend but more on that in a future blog post. So in the next couple weeks the Huskies will work towards making up those games in hand and they will do so, for the most part, against the teams they are currently battling with in the standings. It’s a new year for the Pups and they need to find a way to get back in the win column. Start this year fresh. Put the past behind them and really start building towards the playoffs.
It starts tomorrow night against Dawson Creek at the NPA at 8pm. A nice big loud crowd would certainly help. I hope to see you there.
