Let’s Do This Again: Chiefs / Cents From Prospera

Chilliwack Chiefs (16-6-1-1 – 34 points, 1st in Mainland)

VS Merritt Centennials (13-8-1-1 – 28 points, 2nd in Interior)

(Prospera Centre – Cash Mob Night – 6:30 pregame/7pm faceoff on 89.5 The Hawk)

I’ll keep this brief as to not repeat myself too much, as these teams met just 24 hours ago. Click here for the recap on a 5-3 Centennial victory….Or…you could just scroll down the page a little bit….

Three Things:

– Work ethic came up in the pre-game chat with Chiefs Head Coach Harvey Smyl on Friday night. The Chiefs, for the first time in a little while, didn’t have enough of it on Friday in Merritt and it cost them. The second period really stood out in particular. Too many battles along the boards were lost by the Chiefs, and it cost them in the end, as they had to exert too much energy in trying to mount a comeback.

– This team has shown it’s ability to bounce back after losses. There’s only been one two game skid all season, and tonight presents the rare opportunity for the Chiefs to return the favour in their house against the Centennials less than 24 hours later.

– The size of the rink is bigger, sure, but the Chiefs were beaten in the fundamental elements of the game on Friday. There’s zero coralation between size of the ice surface, and the amount of hustle/heart/pride/intensity on the forecheck a team can bring on any given night. As simple as it sounds, if the Chiefs come ready to work, they’ll find themselves back in the win column. They have not lost at Prospera Centre since mid September. There’s a reason for that.

Special Teams:

Chilliwack – Powerplay – 21.55 %/Penalty Kill – 86.36%

Merritt – Powerplay – 29.35%/ Penalty Kill – 80.52%
