SPRINGHILL - It could be a record-breaking weekend for the Cumberland County Blues as they take on the Windsor Royals and the Pictou County Scotians in Nova Scotia Junior Hockey League action.
"We're one game away from tying the team record of nine wins in a row so that's something we're shooting for," said Blues coach Dave Hyatt.
"If we win Friday we'll equal the record, and then if we win Sunday we'll beat the record."
Hyatt expects tough, physical play this weekend and has prepared his team accordingly.
"Windsor played very physical in our building recently and we expect Pictou to be very physical, so we ran some contact drills during practice," said Hyatt.
Both games are away games and the Blues don't play another home game until Dec. 11.
"We won't play at home again for a couple weeks," said Hyatt. "But for some reason I find we're a better road team than a home team.
"It seems like we play a more simple game on the road than we do when we're at home. At home, people try to do a little too much."
The Blues roster is healthy and Tyler Ferdinand will get the start in goal on Friday night in Windsor, while Andrew Court will be between the pipes against Pictou County on Sunday.
The Windsor game begins tonight at 7:45 p.m., at the Hants Exhibition Arena and the game against Pictou begins at Sunday at 7:30 p.m., at the Trenton Arena.
