The Kimberley Dynamiters (29-7-1-1) aren’t taking their opponents lightly this weekend despite the difference in the standings.
The Nitros play the Golden Rockets (3-32-1-2) Friday and the Fernie Ghostriders (11-23-1-3) Saturday – the bottom two teams in their division.
Golden is coming off a 7-4 win Tuesday over Columbia Valley while Fernie continues to get bodies back from injury.
Head Coach Derek Stuart says they’ll have their work cut out for them all weekend.
“We can’t look at teams’ records, they’re going to try hard.” says Stuart. “I don’t think their players would have come back after the Christmas Break if they weren’t going to come and try their hardest so they’re going to be hard working.”
Head Coach Derek Stuart says they know the Riders can be tough to beat.
“I don’t think we can look at the standings or their points and judge them on that, you have to look at our head-to-head matchups.” says Stuart. “We need to prepare for a Fernie team that’s very capable of beating us.”
The Ghostriders are also in action Friday hosting the Columbia Valley Rockies.
