Wolverines Look to End Skid Against Blues

Coming off of three straight losses to start the new year, the Waywayseecappo Wolverines will look to get back into the win column on Wednesday night when they host the Winnipeg Blues.

The most recent loss for the Wolverines came at the hands of the Portage Terriers on Sunday night, in a game that quickly got away from Waywayseecappo. After trailing only 1-0 after the first period, the Wolverines would end up allowing two in the second and three in the third on the way to a 6-0 loss.

In the previous three meetings between the Wolverines and Blues, it was the Blues who found a way to win in all three contests. Two losses came in October which saw Winnipeg win 3-0 and 2-1 while the third came in early November in a 3-2 defeat.

Winnipeg dropped a close 2-1 decision to the Portage Terriers on Tuesday night in Manitoba’s┬ácapital city and will have a short turnaround when they visit Waywayseecappo on Wednesday night. Over the past ten games, Winnipeg has gone 5-5-0-0, including an impressive pair of wins over Steinbach and Virden.

News and Notes

The Wolverines will be without 20-year-old forward Riley Vautour for the next few games after he left Sunday’s contest against Portage with an upper-body injury. Defenceman Jack Kennedy will return to the lineup after serving a three-game┬ásuspension.
