For the first time this season, the Lions will face-off against the Newfoundland Growlers. The two teams played against one another 14 times in the 2021-2022 season. They also met in the first round of the playoffs, with the Growlers ultimately winning the seventh and final deciding game. The scenario will be somewhat different tonight, although fans can still expect an intense match between these two Canadian rivals.
Even tho the Lions have registered only one victory in four game this season, head coach Éric Bélanger’s players have provided excellent opposition night after night averaging 35 shots on goal per game. Also, the powerplay ignited against the Railers, with all three goals scored with the man advantage. Without a doubt, this is going to be a must-watch game!
Players to watch
Lions’ defenceman Olivier Galipeau has turned into a veritable general on the blue line. He has notched three points in the team’s four games this season. The team’s new assistant captain is without question a key component in Éric Bélanger’s squad.
Growlers’ captain Zach O’Brien has amassed an impressive seven assists in three games. Lions’ defenders will have to pay special attention if they intend to garner a victory tonight.
