HENDERSON, N.V – The Silver Knights will take on the San Jose Barracuda, who are eighth in the Pacific Division, in a single-game contest on Wednesday morning. The Knights are looking to rebound following back-to-back losses to the San Diego Gulls.
“I think the bounces just weren’t going our way, and that’s hockey,” said goaltender Isaiah Saville.
“I think the bounces will come and we just have to keep sticking to the gameplan and grinding away. Their goalie played a really good game, too.”
Head Coach Manny Viveiros was happy with the team’s effort, despite the losses, as well as the scoring chances that the team continued to generate throughout the game.
“The way that we played the game, we’re getting those looks, that’s the most important part. It’s easy for me to say, but for them to understand that, though – if you keep getting those looks, then that’s a positive,” he said.
“That’s something that we’ll stress to our guys.”
LAST TIME OUT
The Henderson Silver Knights fell to the San Diego Gulls on the road, 2-0 and 4-2. Gage Quinney and Lukas Cormier both scored goals for Henderson.
