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.”
