ONTARIO, C.A. – The Henderson Silver Knights look to bounce back after Saturday’s 7-1 loss to the Ontario Reign. Puck drop is set for 5 p.m. PT.
After a frustrating loss to the Reign in the first half of the home-and-home, the Silver Knights will look to get right on the road.
“I hope we’re excited to get a chance to somewhat redeem ourselves playing the same team,” said Head Coach Ryan Craig after Saturday’s game. “It’s a night where they were able to get some bounces early, get some pucks in. But we scored one goal. It’s tough to win in this league when you score one goal…so just regroup and get ready.”
“I didn’t think in our d-zone, we were heavy or hard enough on the walls or in front of the net. So that’s something we’ll have to correct,” he added. “But it’s something I totally think is correctable, and we can get going…I think we should be worried about ourselves and about our game, getting it to the point where we can have success.”
