Let's Drop the Puck!
The Swift Current Broncos host the Moose Jaw Warriors tonight at the Credit Union i-plex to get the season started. Face-off at 7:30pm. We're on the air at 7pm with the pre-game show.
Ryan Switzer will join myself for the call with Tim Tisdale away.
The Broncos will look to continue their recent success against the Warriors. This is the third year in a row the teams have met to begin the season. In 2007/08, the Broncos pulled one out of the fire in Moose Jaw tying the game with 1.3 seconds left and then winning in overtime. Last year the Broncos went into MJ and posted a 6-1 win thanks to a hat-trick from Cody Eakin.
The Warriors return 18-19 players from last year and should be much improved this season. In saying that, it just doesn't happen because everyone is older. It'll be up to them to take the step forward.
The Broncos could have a full line-up tonight but are still awaiting word of F Cody Eakin. For Eakin to make it back to Swift Current from D.C. in a day would be a challenge to say the least.
This is the only Broncos game this weekend. Their next action is in Prince Albert Wednesday and then in Brandon Friday.
See you at the rink,
