The Eugene Generals (11-3) will travel to Post Falls, ID this weekend to face the Coeur d’Alene Lakers (5-8) for two Pacific Division games. The Generals have won the last nine contests between the two teams. The game tomorrow will be the Generals first of seven consecutive road games. The Generals will be on the road for thirteen of the next fifteen games.
“Coeur d’Alene is a tough team that works extremely hard,” Generals Head Coach Jay Miller stated. “We will have to stay extremely focused and play our systems if we want to come away from the weekend with four points. The next couple of months are going to be extremely tough because we’re going to constantly be on the road, but I really believe this group has a lot of character, and think we’ll come out on the other end a much stronger team.”
The Generals have faced the Lakers once this season, and they were able to walk away with a 2-1 win. The Generals outshot the Lakers 44-25 as Lakers goaltender, Branden Amatto, and Generals goaltender, Nolan Ohmart, both played phenomenally in net.
The rink in Post Falls is very small, and the Generals will have a nine hour bus trip to contend with this weekend. The Generals will have to play very offensively, but focus mainly on defense this weekend if they want to come away with two wins.
The games this Friday and Saturday at 7:20 PM in Post Falls, ID will be broadcast in audio only on GiTV. For more information on upcoming games or GiTV please visit eugenegenerals.com.
