Cold Lake Ice look to snap three game losing streak against Lloydminster

The Cold Lake Ice will try to snap their losing skid at home on Friday night against the Lloydminster Bandits.

The lost 3-1 to the St. Paul Canadiens and 3-2 to the Killam Wheat Kings at the Energy Centre last weekend.

Coach Scott Hood and forward Devin Hodgson joined the Sports Show on Monday to discuss the season so far and the recent struggles.

“We’ve had a tough time scoring over the last four of five games, so I think that’s the key,” said Hood.

“You have expectations and we’re making some silly mistakes again. I look back, we watch game film and talk as coaches and talk to the people, maybe I overreact. But I think we have high expectations. Not to take anything away from St. Paul or Killam. There are good teams in this league. If you don’t play a full 60 minutes you’re going to lose. We have and we’ve beat teams when we’ve played a full 60.”

Hood and Hodgson talked about the trip to Fort St. John to start the season, Hood’s Movember mustache, Hodgson’s adjustments moving from Fort McMurray and Puck Off.

The Ice are 5th in the NEAJBHL with a 6-8-1 record.
