SPRINGHILL - The Cumberland County Cool Blues will get an offensive boost tonight when they return to Nova Scotia Junior Hockey League action against the Sackville Blazers.
Forward Andrew Brennan is expected to make his return to the lineup after returning home in October to deal with personal issues. Defenceman Murray Bavis, formerly of the Woodstock Slammers and signed Wednesday, is also expected to play.
"Andrew adds so much more offence that we don't have to rely on the same ones every game," coach Ron Reynolds said. "He'll help our power play and create more chances by taking some of the pressure of guys like Cody Roach and Colin Feehan. It gives us another weapon offensively."
Game time at the Richard Calder Arena is 7:30 p.m. The Blues are also in St. Margaret's Bay on Saturday to face the Bay Ducks.
Landon Crowe is expected to get the start tonight between the pipes.
"We'll have to put in a 60-minute effort in both games," Reynolds said. "It's up to us. If we go out and give it our best we should be OK. They (Sackville) have a good hockey team, they're just finding it hard to score goals right now."
Reynolds said last week's loss to the East Hants Penguins sent a message to his players about preparation.
"They will have to come in and be focused and not be nonchalant. That's been a problem of ours from the first of the season," Reynolds said. "At this level you cannot have slow starts."
While the Ducks are in last place, Reynolds said that doesn't mean they will be an easy two points. The Ducks have made a few changes in the last two weeks, including trading Brett Woodland to East Hants. With a younger team geared for the future, Reynolds feels the Ducks could make some noise down the stretch.
