WARRIORS FACE TOUGH WEEKEND AGAINST TOP TEAMS OF THE EAST
The Warriors will be heading into Alberta this weekend for two tough games. The first will land the tribe in Red Deer, a team the Warriors are still looking to steal 2 points from. The Warriors have had a difficult time scoring on one of the leagues best goal tenders in Darcy Kuemper.
The Warriors will continue onto Medicine Hat Saturday night for a cage fight with the Tigers. The Warriors and Tigers have been battling for the 4th spot in the Eastern Conference and a win Saturday night would be advantageous as the Warriors look to pursue a top four finish come March.
