Dragons fall to Canucks on the road
After successfully shutting out the Okotoks Oilers last Wednesday night, the Dragons headed into Calgary to face another tough interdivision rival the Calgary Canucks.
The Dragons faced the Canucks on Sunday afternoon, January 8 and were in tough. The two teams virtually matched shots for the first period, and remained scoreless after one. In the second period, Calgary’s powerplay fired twice to put the Canucks up, and then added another to end the period 3-0. They outshot the Dragons 20-1 in the period.
The Canucks added two more in the third period, including their third powerplay goal to win 5-0. The Canucks outshot the Dragons 42- 15.
This Wednesday, (tonight) the Dragons are back on the ice at home to face the Oilers again, game time, 7 p.m.
“We have played only two games this season where I would say I was very disappointed in our team. We just came off a game that I thought was one of the best games we played this season against Okotoks, so to come out against the Canucks and play the way we did was very disappointing, other than our goaltending,” said coach Brian Curran in his recap. “I know the players are not happy with their performance either, and we will make the changes that are needed. We know that we are a good team but we need to start stringing solid games together to build for the playoffs.”
