Scotiabank Centre (10,595) ~ Halifax, NS
Your Halifax Mooseheads have another tough test this evening on home ice. They’ll be going up against a team that is 2nd in the Maritimes division and playing pretty good hockey of late. After going up against the league’s best last night and dominating the scoreboard how will the Herd respond today hosting the Moncton Wildcats. Some people will say the home team should kill the visiting team today too but a lot of fans will know that every game can have a different result than expected. The Wildcats will have their Russian duo back in the lineup and they’ll be hungry to have a rebound game against Halifax.
This is the fourth game of the season between Moncton and the Mooseheads. Halifax is 1-1-1-0 against the Cats this season. The two teams played on November 8 last with Stephen Johnson scoring a hat trick for Moncton to give them a 5-4 overtime win.
