Nov 28th @ Langley PREVIEW

The West Kelowna Warriors take on the Langley Rivermen tonight at the Langley Events Centre in a 6 PM start. The Rivermen are ending a 5-game home stand where they have gone 4-1, dropping only last nights game to the Merritt Centennials.

The Rivermen are 16-12 on the season, sitting 3rd in the Mainland Division, while the Warriors are 16-9-0-2, 3 points back of Salmon Arm for 2nd place in the Interior, as the 'Backs visit Vernon tonight after a 5-1 win last night.

Langley and West Kelowna meet for the 2nd time this season, after a 4-1 Warriors victory at the Bauer BCHL Showcase. Expect Keelan Williams to face Bo Didur in the crease tonight, as both had the night off last night with each team playing 3 in 3.

Looking at the Special Teams battle, the Warriors have the 3rd ranked power play at 25.2%, and they are currently 3 for 4 on this road trip. The Rivermen's Penalty Kill comes in with a 76.2% ranking, which places them 15th in the 17-team BCHL.

On the flip side, the Rivermen power play is 8th at 19.4%, and the Warriors PK is 11th at 77.5%.

It should be a dandy at the Langley Events Centre, tune in at or watch on Fast Hockey.

Pre-game show starts tonight at 5:40, with puck drop at 6.
