GAME NOTES:

  • Summerland will look to finish the month of October on a high note after struggling through the month to date. With only tonight’s game remaining before the turn to November, the Steam currently sit 3-7 for the month after a strong 4-1 start in regular season action in September.
  • Despite results in October, the effort has been consistent. Summerland is putting a good effort in and controlling possession time well, there have just been a few mental lapses for 2 and 3 minutes at a time costing them games lately. That started in Nelson, and happened again in both losses to the Kelowna Chiefs last weekend. If they put in the ‘full 60’ as Coach Depourcq says, they’ll be successful.
  • In the previous 2 games of the season series to date, Summerland has outscored Princeton 12-2.
  • To be successful, Summerland will need to stay away from the penalty boxes, for one. They are in the top half of the league in the number of times they’ve been shorthanded, and are 19th of 20 in the number of powerplay opportunities they get.
  • For two, they’ll need to maintain control of their defensive zone, stay in position, and make a good first pass up the wall in order to start the breakout.
  • Summerland Forwards Paulsen Lautard and Jack Mills have been suspiciously quiet in their last 5 games. In the past 5 games the two have combined for just 1 assist, after putting up 31 points between them in the first 10 games of the season.
  • Those numbers would tell me that they’re due for an offensive explosion, and watching them night in and night out I’d bet good money that it’s going to come soon. The Steam would like it to be tonight, leading into a 2PM Home date with the Nelson Leafs tomorrow afternoon.
  • No word on who Coach Depourcq has tabbed to start the weekend in the net for Summerland, but I would expect to see the games split between Goaltenders Matthew Huber and Jake Mullen, likely in that order.
