The Fernie Ghostriders fight for their playoff lives against the Kimberley Dynamiters on Tuesday.
Captain Mitch Titus says they haven’t been able to cash in on their opportunities.
“We’ve had a lot of chances and haven’t been able to bury.” says Titus. “[Dynamiters goaltender] Cody Campbell has been really good in net and I think when it matters at the start of the games when we can keep the games tight we haven’t buried and they have and it’s shown on the scoreboard.”
Fernie is winless in 11 games against the Dynamiters this season.
Titus says the team is keeping a positive mindset heading into game four.
“I mean we’ve got nothing to lose, right?” says Titus. “We come into this series playing the best team in the league statistically in the regular season…we’re expected to lose, there’s no pressure on us really. We’re just here to give it our all and have fun.”
It has been a diffucult season overall for the Fernie Ghostriders who posted a 15-28-1-3 record in the regular season and were forced out of their home arena in October due to a fatal ammonia leak that shut down the facility.
Fernie will fight to stay alive tonight at the Elk Valley Leisure Centre in Sparwood. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 PM.
