Braves look to rebound from shutout loss

Saanich will host Nanaimo Buccaneers Friday at Pearkes Arena

The Saanich Braves are looking to rebound after a brief lapse in focus cost them a 3-0 loss to the Westshore Wolves last Friday.

The Braves and Wolves entered the third period in a scoreless tie when the Wolves capitalized on a penalty to make it 1-0. The Braves immediately earned an unsportsmanlike penalty which the Wolves capitalized on.

“It was a tough pill to swallow. I think we played right into their hands, quite frankly,” said Braves coach Brad Cook on the Braves website. “For a Friday night home game there was no emotion, no pace, no scrums, it was just a bunch of guys playing hockey.”

The Braves host the Nanaimo Buccaneers Friday, 6:30 p.m. at Pearkes Arena. The Braves then play a rare Wednesday night game to accommodate the Peninsula Panthers on Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m. at Pearkes.

In NHL news, former Brave Adam Cracknell will wear No. 24 as he starts the season on the Vancouver Canucks roster.
