SAN JOSE, C.A – After their first loss of the season against the Bakersfield Condors, the Silver Knights will take on the San Jose Barracuda for the second game of their midweek back-to-back. Puck drop is set for 7 p.m.
Forward Sheldon Rempal scored the lone goal for Henderson in Tuesday’s contest. The Silver Knights are 2-0-0 against the Barracuda this season after two victories on the team’s opening weekend at home.
The Silver Knights are looking to get things back on track after a disappointing 5-1 loss in Bakersfield. The team is looking to bring the energy and the discipline that brought them success in their first four games heading into their matchup with the Barracuda.
“I think we just got away from our game a little bit,” Morelli said this morning after practice. “I think all the guys are really accountable, and we all take responsibility for our effort. We’re all looking forward to redeeming ourselves, getting back on track, and playing our game tonight in San Jose.”
‘Beneficial’ is rarely the word that comes to mind for fans when thinking about a back-to-back with travel. But that’s exactly how Henderson’s players described it this morning, providing them with the best opportunity to right the ship and get back in the win column.
“I think everyone would agree that it can be nice to get back on track and fix your mistakes really quickly,” Morelli added. “It kind of makes up for some of the bad things that happened yesterday. We just want to get back to that winning brand of hockey.”
