Rampage take to the highway for first road game this weekend

The Prince Rupert Rampage won't have to travel very far to launch their first road trip of the 2015-16, with a short jaunt down Highway 16 part of the itinerary for week two of the new CIHL season.

The Rampage who are coming off a shoot out split over the weekend with their Cariboo cousins, will resume their always feisty rivalry with the Terrace River Kings on Saturday night.

The Rampage will be looking to have Tyler Ostrom and Jared Meers keep their hot scoring touch on fire, so far in these early days of the season, the pair of Rhinos are leading the team in scoring at three points each, with Ostrom netting a goal and two assists, while Meers has three helpers to this point.

Offensive depth though is looking to be much more of a key for the Rampage two games into the season with 13 players having picked up their first point or points of the season.

And while the offensive play is heating up, the need to shut down the opposition in their own end is something that will need to be worked on a bit more as the team finds its legs in the first month of play.

In their first two games, the Rampage have surrendered 8 goals against, with goaltenders Jarrod Hildebrand and Devin Garrets having faced shot goals of 47 and 52 respectively.

Saturday's puck drop is scheduled for 8 PM at the Terrace Ice Arena, you can get a sense of how the early season has gone for River Kings from this item in the Terrace Standard.

The Rampage will be back on the road next weekend as well, with a Friday night contest in Kitimat.
