It’s a do or die game tonight for the Fort McMurray Oil Barons.
After losing their last three games, the MOB find themselves down 3-1 in their series against the Whitecourt Wolverines.
Head Coach Tom Keca tells Mix News he believes if the team goes to the dirty areas they should come out on top.
“They obviously have a good goaltender that’s going to make the saves if he can see them, so what our objective is to make sure not only to get a lot of traffic, shots in front of the net but if there are any rebounds we need to make sure we’re present.”
In the last two games, both on the road, the team has only scored two goals while giving up seven.
Keca says he’s looking at his veterans to take control and help end their offensive woes.
“This a time where the coaches don’t need to say anything, the players inside the room are going to determine the outcome – we got six very proud 20-year-olds in the room, they don’t want it to be their last game and it’s a matter of them leading by example but also our younger guys following.”
Game 5 will be on Friday at 7:30 at the Casman Centre.
If the MOB win, Game 6 will be in Whitecourt on Sunday.
