FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Northeast B.C./Yukon Trackers are back in the friendly confines of the North Peace Arena as they welcome the Lakeland Panthers.
The boys in blue and white are coming off a two-game road trip in Whitecourt where they picked up three of a possible four points, maintaining their one-point advantage atop the Bouchier Division standings over the Peace River Royals. Both teams have two games remaining in regular season play versus the Panthers and St. Albert Blues.
The Trackers bench boss knows that just because the Panthers are last in the standings, his team can’t take their foot off the gas as the regular season comes to a close.
“Lakeland is lower in the standings so that’s always dangerous for our group,” said head coach Gerard Dicaire. “We have to play our game and not get sucked into the temp of theirs. We had a good week of practice and are looking for the boys to carry some of what they learned into the game tomorrow.”
Saturday’s clash with the Panthers is at the North Peace Arena. Puck drop is at 11:00 a.m.
