Ross Martin and the rest of the Ramblers travel to Miramichi tonight to take on the league leading Timberwolves.
AMHERST – The Maritime Hockey League’s Amherst Ramblers will be looking to get back on track Wednesday in Miramichi after coming off a 4-2 loss to the Bearcats on Sunday afternoon in Truro.
“The rest of the schedule is really important to see who’s going to finish in what position,” said Jim Bottomley, Ramblers coach and general manager. “It’s not an easy schedule. Everybody is tough that we play and every game is important.”
The Ramblers currently sit in third place in the Eastlink Division with 49 points, and will face off Wednesday against the Miramichi Timberwolves, who are atop the Roger Meek Division with 51 points.
Bottomley said little mistakes can make the difference between winning and losing at this time of year.
“We can’t turn the puck over,” said Bottomley. “We have to keep our shots against us down, play a little tougher defensively in our own zone, and create a few more scoring chances.”
The Ramblers scored two goals in each of their last two games, and Bottomley wants more goals from his team.
“We have to get more pucks to the net and jump on some rebounds,” he said.
Wednesday’s game starts at 7:30 p.m.
