AMHERST?- Statistics can tell lies and such is the case when the Ramblers face off against the Halifax Wolverines on Saturday night at Amherst Stadium.
"We have a better record than Halifax but we haven't beaten them all year," Rambler coach Corey Crocker said. "We accept that as a challenge for our hockey team."
Because both teams have a point to make, Crocker said both teams will come out hard.
"Both team's will definitely be motivated," Crocker added. "We want to get a game from them and they want to beat us because we're ahead in the standings."
Despite the strong desire to put another mark in the win column; it will be business as usual for the Ramblers.
"We're not going to change our game plan 48 games in," Crocker said. "We will make adjustments when we get to the playoffs but our overall philosophy of what we want to do this year will never change. We want to go with the same game plan we had all year."
The Ramblers have a fairly harsh schedule as the season winds down, playing most of their games away from home against the league's top teams.
The tough schedule could play in the Ramblers favour come playoff time.
"Playing away from Amherst allows us to spend a lot of time together as a team," Crocker said. "It's great for team building to have some fun on the road."
After Saturday the Ramblers will travel to Antigonish on Sunday to take on the Bulldogs, then on Thursday they travel to Halifax to have another crack at the Wolverines. Next weekend they travel to Yarmouth where they will play the Mariners on both Friday and Saturday night.
