The Kelowna Rockets will host the Everett Silvertips tomorrow night on Hat Trick Wednesday at Prospera Place.
Kelowna is coming off a 4-3 loss to the Kamloops Blazers on Saturday night, the Blazers scored the game-winning goal on a penalty shot with 1:20 remaining in the game. Head Coach, Adam Foote says that the Rockets need to bring a strong work ethic to the ice.
“We have to play an A game against Everett and work at their level,” said Foote. “They’re a team that doesn’t stop working shift in and shift out.”
