Rampage scoreboard watching this week as CIHL regular season heads into the home stretch

With a week off before their final weekend of play in the regular season, the players on the  Prince Rupert Rampage, as well as their loyal fans, will be spending some of their time watching the CIHL scoreboard this weekend.

And if you listen carefully around town tomorrow night, you may be hearing the chant of GO STEELHEADS GO ...

The Rhinos currently hold down the Top Spot in the tightly contested race for the regular season title, after a very successful trip into the Cariboo last weekend.

As we noted on Monday, the Rampage claimed both victories on Saturday and Sunday as part of the cross province trek into the Central Interior.

Their success on the road making for a one point lead over their rivals in Terrace, with the River Kings looking to overtake the Rupert boys this weekend.

The River Kings head to Smithers Saturday for a 7:30 match up with the Steelheads and should the Smithereens prevail, the road for a Prince Rupert title will get a little bit easier into the final week of the season,  leaving the entire opportunity in the hands of the Rampage next weekend.

Even with a Terrace win, the showdown seems set for Friday night when the Rampage host the River Kings in the first game in a two game home stand at 8PM at the Jim  

The regular season wraps up on home ice for the Rhinos on Saturday night when Hazelton comes to town for a 7 PM start.

That however is all for next weekend, for now, Ramapge fans can get a head start towards putting on some good karma ...  GO STEELHEADS GO
