The Warriors didn’t get what they wanted out of Saturday nights game versus the Wenatchee Wild after losing a 2-0 lead early to end up losing 5-4. It was a game the Warriors were only utilizing 5 blueliners with Jake Harrison, Garrett Ewert, and Ryan Novecosky out of the lineup. Tonight the Warriors faceoff against a very well rested Salmon Arm Silverbacks who have yet to play a single regular season game. The Warriors spilt the home and home with the Silverbacks during the preseason, but that was the preseason. The Warriors are going to expect a full lineup from the Silverbacks and with key leaders out of the lineup they’re going to need to get some secondary scoring from some of their rookies. Warriors Head Coach and General Manager Brandon West knew there were obvious mistakes made Saturday night that cannot happen against a club like the Silverbacks, “We’re going to have to manage the game better than we did Saturday night, this isn’t an easy league to win games in”. Key to a Warriors win tonight will have to be capitalizing on some possible rust on the Silverbacks side and get that early multi goal lead, something that proved to be successful when they defeated the Silverbacks in exhibition play two weeks ago.
This afternoon’s game will be broadcast on both HockeyTV and the Warriors Mixlr Network. Puck drop at 3:00pm from the Shaw Centre in Salmon Arm.
