The Kimberley Dynamiters are hitting the road for a pair of Okanagan outings in the KIJHL.
Friday night, the Nitros meet the Posse in Princeton and Saturday, they face the Summerland Steam.
Head coach Derek Stuart expects a pair of tough matchups.
“I think Princeton, from the sounds of what I’ve been told, is not a very hospitable place to go and play as a road team,” Stuart says. “We’re going to have to treat it as if we were playing in Beaver Valley with a smaller arena and Summerland has been very good as of late.”
Stuart says the first place Dynamiters need to work on face-offs.
“There’s one area that we are working on,” Stuart says. “Being a little more urgent, being more ready off face-offs. That’s one area that I think that right now is not quite where it needs to be.”
The Fernie Ghostriders are on the road as well with a date with the Nelson Leafs Saturday.
The Columbia Valley Rockies are in Creston Friday to take on the Thunder Cats and face the Castlegar Rebels at home Saturday.
