After a week off to rest, refuel, and prepare for the weekend ahead, the Pistons shutout the Selkirk Steelers 6-0 on Saturday night on home ice. The team now hits the road to the pound for a Sunday evening tilt with the Terriers.
Six different goal scorers and a Cole Plowman shutout were the two big stories in the win despite a scoreless first period against the Steelers. This was Plowman’s first shutout of the season.
Meanwhile, the Terriers are coming off of a 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Blues in overtime on Saturday night. The Terriers have also beaten the Niverville Nighthawks in their last two contests to pull ahead in 3rd place in the standings.
PISTONS: PP 15/66 – 22.7% PK 79/88 – 89.8%
TERRIERS: PP 17/93 – 18.3% PK 66/80 – 82.5%
PLAYERS TO WATCH
PISTONS: Jack Cook
Jack is racking up apples like he’s casually picking them in a loaded orchard on a peaceful Sunday afternoon. The Thunder Bay product currently sits in second place in the points race amongst MJHL defenseman with 3 goals and 15 assists in 16 games. He is also notably 14th in the league in points per game at 1.13 which is an impressive pace if he can keep that up. Don’t be surprised to find him on the scoresheet on Sunday night.
TERRIERS: Parker Scherr
Let’s compare apples to apples, or defenseman to defenseman should I say. Parker is tallying up some points of his own with 2 goals and 12 assists this season. 4 of those points come in the last 2 games with a goal and 3 assists. The 19 year old blue liner is a big part of the Terrier defense along with their fast moving powerplay.
Puck drop at Stride place is at 6:30pm. Catch the game on FloHockey or listen to voice of the Pistons Dave Anthony over at DAbroadcasting.mixlr.com.
