The Prince Rupert Rampage took the drive down highway 16 into enemy territory this weekend as they prepare to face the Kitimat Ice Demons and Terrace River Kings.
The game comes a week after the Rampage drubbed the Ice Demons by a final score of 7-2. The Rampage came out strong after their two-week break and scored three goals in the first period and from there they never looked back.
Kitimat has struggled this season so far, having yet to register their first win, posting a 0-10. While the Rampage have had a bounce-back year going 7-3 through their first 10 games, sitting second in the league standings.
Kitimat has had trouble fielding a full lineup in games thus far this season. Something that hurt them last week against the Rampage.
“They had a short bench which makes things tougher for them,” said Roger Atchison head coach of the Prince Rupert Rampage, after last weeks game.
Prince Rupert goes into the competition having allowed the least goals per game in the league, allowing 44 through their first ten games. Compared to the Ice Demons who have given up a staggering 84 through their first ten.
Prince Rupert ranks second in goals per game, putting up 66 thus far. Prince Rupert will look to continue their dominance of Kitimat this season.
The game will kick off tonight at 8 p.m.
