The Fort St. John Huskies will have their work cut for themselves tonight as they’ll take on the Fairview Flyers at the North Peace Arena. The Flyers come to Fort St. John with a big lead in the league’s standings as they’ve won 15 of their first 16 games since the year began.
The Huskies came close to putting a dent in the Flyers record back on October 23 as they fell just short 6-5, and the Flyers had a convincing win on November 10th 4-1.
Huskies assistant captain Cayle Bell said at the end of yesterday’s Skate with the Huskies that everyone needs to buy in to what the coaching staff has been trying to instill and come to the rink ready to play if they are going to be successful in tonight’s game.
“Just a better effort and a better attitude. Hopefully we’ll buy into the system more and walk away with a win. We need to work the power play the way it needs to be used. We had good practices this week with guys working hard,” he said.
The opening faceoff is slated for 8 p.m.
