Weekend Preview: Wichita Jr. Thunder
by WSHL Staff
Dallas is fresh off a victory over Oklahoma City (see link above) and a positive road trip in Wichita, but will return to the Wichita Ice Center for its final three games of the regular season. Jr. Thunder has been out of action since losing three straight to the Snipers at home.
Dallas knows not to underestimate the Jr. Thunder who can really strike at times. They are still tied for third place and the trailing Pueblo Bulls have three more games on the schedule. Dallas needs to try and sweep all nine points this weekend to give themselves the best opportunity for a third place finish.
Dallas holds the longest active win streak in the Midwest-Mountain division at five straight wins, and did so in scoring 37 goals during that span.
If the Jr. Thunder don't have a say in Dallas' playoff implications this weekend, they are still indirectly in the conversation since their final opponent of the season will indeed be the Pueblo Bulls.
