The Kootenay ICE play the Brandon Wheat Kings back to back nights in Cranbrook.
The ICE have scored on the man advantage in each of their last four games.
Head Coach James Patrick says it all comes down to puck movement.
“The facts are out there.” says Patrick. “When you play with pace, you move [the puck] and play with some speed in your attack, it worked for us last time so that’s what we need to do.”
The ICE are coming off a 7-3 win over Lethbridge where they finished 2 for 4 on the power play.
Brandon is in the midst of a seven-game road swing and has yet to win on their first five stops.
Patrick knows Brandon will be hungry for a win.
He says Kootenay needs to focus on their own game and not worry about their opponent.
“[We’re going to have] to execute [and] make plays.” says Patrick. “At this time of the year you play your system and then you compete and work hard. It does get simpler as far as game plans go.”
You can hear Friday and Saturday’s games live on The Drive starting with the pre game show at 6:35.
