The Huskies enter the mid-week game against Sexsmith having played the Vipers once already, in Fort St. John, unfortunately suffering a come-from-behind loss 5-4 in favour of the visiting Vipers.
Despite the loss, it was a productive game for Fort St. John, who saw one of their offensive lines, made up of sophomores Dylan Houle and Blair Karasiuk, along with rookie Cayle Bell, begin to develop some promising chemistry.
In the only meeting between the two teams back on October 25, the line scored three of Fort St. John's four goals, while combining for eight points on the evening.
It’s a big two points on the line tonight in the NWJHL standings, as the Huskies enter the Wednesday evening game sitting in seventh place (4-7-0-1), only one point behind sixth place Sexsmith (5-8-0-0). A road win for the pups would see them jump past the Vipers into a tie with the fifth place Fairview Flyers.
Hopefully the Huskies can use their previous loss against the Vipers as motivation, as the Huskies led 4-3 entering the third, only to allow the visiting team to score two unanswered third period goals for the win.
