The Nanaimo Clippers play one of the league’s last-placed teams, and then one of the league’s best teams. They intend to bring the same kind of energy both nights.
The Clips host the Alberni Valley Bulldogs on Friday (Nov. 8) at Frank Crane Arena, then entertain the Penticton Vees the next night at the Frank.
“They’re all exciting,” said Mason Mitchell, Clippers forward. “It doesn’t matter what team it is, you’ve got to come consistently every night. If we don’t have a good game we aren’t going to win. Whether it’s a top team or bottom team, we’re going to play like we usually do and hopefully we win.”
Bo Brauer, Clippers forward, said his team wants to play with emotion this coming weekend.
“We’ve got to bring high energy and enthusiasm to our next games and if we can do that then I think we can play really well,” he said. “If you’re not excited for every game you play, it’s really not a good way to go about it.”
GAME ON … Friday’s game against the Bulldogs and Saturday’s tilt with the Vees are both 7 p.m. faceoffs at Frank Crane Arena.
