Two-game home stand this week
SPRINGHILL - After only playing a few games in the last three weeks the Cumberland County Cool Blues schedule is beginning to heat up again.
The Blues continue the second leg of their home and home stand against the Brookfield Elks at the Richard Calder Arena on Friday night, then on Sunday they play at home against the Windsor Royals
"The schedule has been an issue," Cool Blues coach Dave Hyatt said about the dry spells in the schedule. "But the boys are ready to go."
Before last nights game the Cool Blues were in a three-way tie in their division with the St. Margaret's Bay and Brookfield. (Game scores from last night's game were not available as of press time).
"If we want to get some points we're have to play with a lot of grit and determination," Hyatt added.
Hyatt said the Elks are a tough team to play because of their strong defensive style.
"Brookfield has good goaltending, their goals against are low and they play a physical type of game," he said.
Cool Blue goaltender Landon Crowe knee injury, which was sustained during their game against Sackville last week, has been given the go ahead by his doctor to play again.
Goaltender Patrick O'Brien, who sustained a foot injury at the beginning of the season, has been practicing with the Blues but is still not ready to be thrown into a game situation.
"I wouldn't put a timetable on it," Hyatt said.
The game on Friday against Brookfield begins at 7:30 p.m. while Sunday's match-up against Windsor also has a 7:30 start.
