Broncos Begin Tough Stretch

The Broncos play the first of four games in five nights as they head into Saskatoon tonight looking for their first road win.

They won't get much sympathy from the Blades who will play their fifth game in six nights after a 2-1 victory over Moose Jaw last night.

The Broncos will look to get the "road win" monkey off their back tonight.

"I think we are all getting sick of it. I think there are some games we easily should have won but we didn't. That's hockey sometimes. You have to battle through adversity and you can't let it get in your head."- D Eric Doyle

Meanwhile Head Coach/GM Mark Lamb thinks they need to do more of the little things right to win on the road.

"Just playing well isn't good's not good enough in any league. You have to do the little things to win, especially on the road. We have to play a strong team game which we have done at times but not consistently enough."

The Broncos return home to host Prince George Friday and then head into Lethbridge Saturday and Calgary Sunday.

The Blades have now won six in a row and 12 of their last 13 to take a solid lead a top the east division. They are doing it all without a decent powerplay. The Blades have the 2nd worst PP in the league at 12.6%. Just imagine where they will be when they get that going.

The Blades are doing it with defense and goaltending. They've surrendered the fewest amount of goals in the Eastern Conference (44).

Tonight's pre-game show will feature Prince George G.M. Dallas Thompson as they begin a lengthy road swing east.

Time to get stuff done! More blogging tonight from Saskatoon.........

I'm hearing lots of rumors that the Broncos are making a there any validity to that at all regardless if it's a big move or smaller move?
