They might be the last place team in the Alberta Junior Hockey League's South Division, but somebody forgot to tell the Calgary Canucks -- or the Drumheller Dragons, for that matter.
The Dragons skated into Calgary in 2nd place in the South and coming off three straight wins. All that came to an end at the Max Bell Centre as the Canucks prevailed 4-2.
"It's tough coming off a weekend where you had two days off and spent time stuffing your belly, but both teams were in the same boat and we have no excuses," remarked Dragons Head Coach and General Manager Kevin Hasselberg.
"We know where we've got to get to and it's kind of been a challenge for us this season finding that consistency," he added.
Caiden Kreitz stopped 36 shots in the Canucks net for the win. Hunter Virostek stopped 29 of 33 shots to take the loss. Joren Patenaude and Markus Boguslavsky had the Dragons goals.
Next up for Drumheller are the Sherwood Park Crusaders in a road game this Friday.
"That's another team that's probably had some consistency issues, but they're a good northern hockey team and we're going to have to be sharp, certainly better than we were tonight," concluded Hasselberg.
