Rampage look for turn around in friendly confines

For the Prince Rupert Rampage the lengthy road trips have come to an end for now and tonight starts a stretch of games that take place in the friendly confines of the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre, offering the Rampage a chance to get back on track in their 2012-13 season.

The road treks have taken their toll on the Rampage, with just 1 win to show for their 8 game so far in the season, the Rampage have suffered 6 losses and an OT Shoot loss along the way for a total of three points on the year thus far.

So they no doubt are looking forward to the extended stay at home to work out some of the items of concern that have popped up over the first half of the CIHL season.

Among those things to work on, a league low Goals For rating, so far in 2012-13 the Rampage have scored but 21 goals in the course of their 8 games, surrendering 44 along the way.

Saturday night at the Jim features the Williams Lake Stampeders making the trek from the Central Interior to the coast and a rendezvous with the Rampage, the Stampeders are currently in second place in the Eastern Division with a 5-2-1 record good for 11 points, three behind division leading Lac La Heche.

Sunday afternoon it's the Quesnel Kangaroos in town, they will arrive in Rupert after a Saturday evening match up with the Kitimat Ice Demons, looking to gain some ground on both Williams Lake and Lac La Heche.  Quesnell heads into Kitimat tonight, with a record of 3-4-1 and 7 points.

The weekend doubleheader launches a four game home stand for the Rampage, next week they face the  Kitimat Ice Demons on Saturday night, while Terrace will be in town on December 8th.

The four games are a pivotal stretch for the Rampage, as they look to get back in the win column in the CIHL Eastern division.

Game time Saturday night is 7:30 PM, Sunday's match with Quesnel has puck drop scheduled for 1:30.
