The Kootenay ICE return home to Western Financial Place on Friday to take on the Red Deer Rebels.
The ICE are looking for a win following a five game road trip that saw them drop their last four straight.
Alternate Captain Vince Loschiavo says despite their current loss streak, the team is dedicated to finishing on a high note.
He explains they don’t want guys going off on their own page, trying to do everything themselves.
With only six games remaining, they want to finish off strong and feel good after the season.
The ICE are coming off of a 4-3 overtime loss against the Medicine Hat Tigers on Tuesday.
Loschiavo had two goals and an assist in the comeback attempt and says the ICE need to repeat that energy on Friday.
Currently sitting sixth in the Eastern Conference, the Rebels are still fighting for a spot in the playoffs.
Desperate for points they are coming off of back to back losses and will also be without Captain Adam Musil.
The forward suffered an off-ice injury on Sunday and is expected to miss the remainder of the season.
It’s a first of a home and home series between the two teams and their fifth meeting of the season.
The Rebels lead the series 3-2.
