Timberwolves Diary: Another Two Game Weekend

Team News

This weekend we head to Edmundston to play the very strong Edmundston Blizzard. This team has a 5-1 record so far after 6 games. We were the only team that was able to get the win against Edmundston this year beating them 3-2 abs, spoiling their home opener in front of a sold out crowd. 

Edmundston has one of the strongest fan bases in the league and sells out every game, which makes it a hard game for the road team to win. So, it should be a good challenge for us and definitely a good game that means a lot in the standings. 

Saturday night we head back home for a rescheduled game vs. the Grand Falls Rapids at the Civic Centre. Due to Fredericton going back into the Orange zone the league was forced to reschedule our home game against them until a later date. This is the first time we welcome Grand Falls into our home barn beating them 7-6 in a shootout last weekend at their home rink. They will definitely be out for revenge Saturday night. It will be a good game for sure; game time is at 7 pm.

Personal update
I’m finally all caught up with my school work and ready for a few big test s and assignments coming up in the next couple of weeks. I hope to help out the team anyway possible in another big two game weekend when points are very important, especially during these tough times with the COVID-19 protocols and everyone’s unsure of what’s going to happen next.
