Some more pics that capture the game and Takhini Arena leading up to and during Saturday's game in Whitehorse.

It's back to reality tonight as the Blazers host the Tri-City Americans tonight at ISC. Here's a few thoughts.

- The Americans are almost unbeatable at home (21-3-0-1) but on the road they've just a little above average (14-12-2-0). After winning twice and losing once in a three-in-three weekend, the Americans play their 4th game in 5 nights.

- The Ams are without starting goaltender Drew Owlsey who is back in Kennewick trying to recover from a knee injury. 16 year-old Chris Dreidger has been handling the duties instead.

- Blazer D Brandon Underwood remains out but is progressing from his knee injury quite well. If you ask him, he's just a few weeks away from getting back into the line-up. It'll be up to the Blazers medical staff but good news nonetheless.

- The Blazers will practice Thursday morning before departing for Red Deer. They will begin a five game Central division swing in Edmonton Friday night.
