The Kootenay ICE are hoping to play their way back into the win column after a rough three game weekend.
The ICE lost all three of their games, including a 5-nothing loss to Calgary Friday and a 9-1 drubbing by Moose Jaw Sunday.
Defenceman Dallas Hines says despite last weekend’s losses, several of the younger players are having solid games.
“A bunch of our young guys are playing good, coming up big when we need them,” Hines says. “I know some of the older guys are struggling, so that’s always a positive. We’ll get into the systems and stuff and hopefully be ready to play.”
Hines says they are working on all areas of their game ahead of the weekend.
They’ll welcome Red Deer Friday and Prince Albert Saturday.
Forward Davis Murray felt the team deserved a better fate in their match-up with Red Deer last weekend, where they lost 5-4 in overtime.
“We had our opportunities. I mean when you come away with a point in the end, its still a positive, but you want to come away with those two points,” Murray says. “It can be tough to get on the bus and travel all the way to Red Deer and then have to travel back for another game the next day, but that’s how it is. That’s what it is, you have to find a way to succeed.”
Murray hopes the team has the opportunity to reset this week before their next two games.
