One final November road run for the Rampage

The long, tiring treks of November are about to come to an end for the Prince Rupert Rampage.

Having spent the majority of this month travelling the length of the CIHL road map, the Rampage have one more road trip to make, as they head off to Kitimat for what is a key match up with the Ice Demons tonight.

The Rampage had their struggles as they pulled into the rinks of Williams Lake, Quesnel and Smithers through the month, coming away from the lengthy time away from the Jim with an 0 and 4 record.

That's a string of losses that normally would spell a bit of doom for a teams playoff ambitions, however, while the Rampage had their struggles so too did their rivals from Kitimat.

As the Rampage head into tonight's game with the Ice Demons, they find themselves currently tied with the Kitimat squad each with three points in the standings, setting the stage for a showdown this evening to gain the advantage for the weeks ahead.

Still, that offers up the opportunity for the Rampage to make a push into December for a playoff placement in the CIHL West, with the Ice Demons the team that they will be battling for that spot against.

With a solid effort tonight in Kitimat, the Rupert side can send a message tonight that they have plans for some post season play when January rolls around.

Game time is 8 PM at the Tamitik Arena.
