The Spruce Kings have had an excellent start to the season, sitting in first place in their division after 12 games. This weekend they hit the road to take on the 2nd place team in their division, the Langley Rivermen, as well as the Surrey Eagles.
The first place Spruce Kings are in action tonight as they host the Merritt Centennials. A big part of the Kings’ early success this year has been their forward depth, thanks in part to guys like Patrick Cozzi and Dustin Manz.
The Cougars played by far their wildest game of the season Friday night, dropping a back-and-forth affair with the Kelowna Rockets 7-6 in overtime. Saturday night at the CN Centre there were a lot less goals, but the result was very similar.
The last time the Greater Vancouver Canadians were in Prince George, they were watching the Cariboo Cougars hoist the BCMML trophy on the ice at Kin 1. This weekend, G-V-C was back in town looking for some revenge, and came in on top of the league at 4-and-oh.
