FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Huskies resume their second-round NWJHL playoff matchup with the Grande Prairie JDA Kings Tuesday evening.
The Huskies hung on to defeat the Kings in Game 1 of the series on Saturday evening, as the team nearly blew a 5-0 lead.
“We need to play with energy for a full 60 minutes,” said General Manager Jeremy Clothier. “Going into an opponents rink in the playoffs is a completely different than the regular season. However, if we approach it like we did in the season and play a full game, we will be fine.”
Pups forward Sebastian Powsey will miss the remainder of the season after breaking his fibula in Game 1.
Tuesday’s Game 2 tilt in Grande Prairie gets underway at 8:30 p.m.
