Huskies Vs Junior Canucks game two preview


After losing their first playoff game on the road, the Fort St. John Huskies will play their second game at home.


After suffering a 3-2 loss in overtime in Dawson Creek Wednesday night, the Huskies will welcome the Junior Canucks to the North Peace Arena Friday, hoping to even up the series at one game a piece.

The Huskies will need to focus on staying disciplined, as the team spent a fair amount of time during Wednesday’s game killing penalties. Two of which took place in overtime, with Dawson Creek winning the game on a power play goal.

It would also be beneficial if the Huskies could get some healthy bodies back in the lineup. The team has been struggling to put forth a healthy squad for much of the season, which has carried over into the playoffs.

Luckily, Huskies goaltender Ty Gullickson, played exceptionally well Wednesday. Gullickson stopped 68 of the 71 shots fired his way, keeping his team alive throughout the entire game.

Hopefully the Fort St. John faithful will provide the spark necessary in helping the Huskies tie up the playoff series.

Game two takes place Friday at 8 p.m.
