The Westside Warriors return to Royal LePage Place tonight (Tuesday), kicking off a four-game home stand after a tumultuous week that saw the team trade its leading scorer and lose two out of three games.
The Warriors lost 7-2 at home to Penticton on Friday before splitting two games in Prince George, winning 3-2 Saturday and losing by the same score on Sunday.
The Warriors led 2-0 Sunday before the Spruce Kings came back. Westside appeared to go up 3-0 but had a goal disallowed. The Kings then scored a late goal on a deflection from the corner to win it 3-2.
"That's kind of the way our season has been going," said Warriors coach Rylan Ferster.
The Warriors are right back on the ice Tuesday, playing Penticton. They enter the game at 9-14-0-4.
"We're only seven points out of playoffs and having the wins we have at this point I think that's on of the positive things," said Ferster. "We're getting healthier every day and getting more guys back everyday. We're clawing our way back. We've played some very good games and I like our team."
Newly acquired Warrior Marcus Basara played all three games after being acquired for Tyler Krause, and notched his first as a Warrior.
The Warriors host Vernon on Friday and Prince George on Saturday, plus Nanaimo next week, as part of their four game home stand.
