Its the Broncos and the Kootenay Ice tonight from the Rec Plex in their 2nd meeting of the season. The Broncos will try to carry momentum from Tuesday's win over Red Deer while at the same time look for some revenge after Kootenay beat them 7-5 a week ago. That night the Ice built a 5-0 lead in the 2nd period before the Broncos rallied back to make it close.
The Broncos are expecting some help in the line-up tonight. Spencer McAvoy, Geordie Wudrick, and Matt Tassone will be evaluated later today.
We are on the air at 7:30pm with the Big Show, play-by-play at 8pm. Decent day in Cranny, about -7 with some sunshine at noon local time.
