KEYS TO THE GAME PRESENTED BY MAINLINE MOTORS
Full Sixty - Twice in the last week, the Wheat Kings have found a way to win hockey games, despite not being the better team. Last night, the Raiders took over the game for the final 40 minutes, but the BWK hung around and found a way to win. Brandon needs to get back to a complete sixty minute effort to be successful.
Keep Your Head On Straight- With just two games left in the season, the Wheat Kings need to remeber the task at hand and not get looking too far into the future. The excitment to get home is certainly rising, but the excitement of being one point away from a division title should be higher.
