Looking ahead – four games in Edmonton

BWC will have to stay sharp to keep their win streak in tact. Three of their four opponents on the weekend are in the top four in the standings, and all four are above .500.

They’ll face NAX first, a team they beat 3-1 in their only other meeting this season.

They play Edge (8-7-3) first on Saturday, who have given BWC two tough games this season. BWC won 2-1 and 4-3 via shootout in their matchups.

Rink (12-7-2) is the second opponent on Saturday. BWC beat them 9-8 and 5-3 in their two meetings.

Finally, they take on Prairie (12-7-0) on Sunday, a team BWC beat by a narrow 4-3 score back in October.
