|Old Time Logo's For 2 Historical Teams|
With 6 wins in their first 8 games, the Terriers sit with the 2nd best win percentage in the SJHL, behind only Flin Flon. They posses heavy gun Jeremy Johnson, who has 8 goals in 8 games, and they've also allowed a league low 16 goals thanks to Conor Barrie and local boy Kale Thomson. Not bad for a team that hardly made it over 10 returning players.
The Mustangs meanwhile, are now playing .500 hockey at 5-5-0-0 and will look to be above .500 with a win for the first time since February 16th of 2011, and hey, this Terrier club is the same one that ousted the Mustangs in 5 games in the 2nd round that year. A win would also help the Mustangs gain ground on the Humboldt Broncos, assuming they pick up a minimum of 2 points in 2 games leading up to Thursday. The 'Stangs are currently 1 point back of their barn pals, with 2 games more being played by Melfort.
Game time on Thursday is 7:30 at Northern Lights Palace, and if you are unable to make it to the rink, I encourage you to tune in to the Melfort Mustangs Broadcast Network for a few bucks cheaper with Sportsnet like scoreboards and replays!
