The Kimberley Dynamiters go into their holiday break on a five game winning streak.
The Nitros beat Fernie 4-2 last night in a rough game that included a brawl at the end of the second period.
Head Coach Derek Stuart says there was certainly room for improvement on the Dynamiters bench.
“We managed to find a way to win,” Stuart says. “Power play wasn’t very good even though we did get two powerplay goals, we had 8 or 10 opportunities and we weren’t really sharp on the majority of them.”
Stuart says the Nitros did not play their best hockey in the match-up.
“It was up and down, a little bit of sloppy hockey,” Stuart says. “Lot of penalties, but it was a pretty hard fought game, intense game and I think both teams worked really hard.”
The Dynamiters enter the break with 26 wins and four losses on the season.
They will be back on the ice Friday, December 28th in Kamloops.
