Season Series:  This is the first meeting between the two clubs this season.

Team Scope:

Terriers:  The Terriers host the Bombers having just come off two shootout games where they split winning one and losing one.  They sit second behind the Melville Millionaires and boast the leagues stingiest defense only allowing 16 goals so far this season.  They score by committee having seven players with seven or more points, all lead by RW Jeremy Johnson who has 10 points (8g, 2a) in eight games.

Bombers:  To say that the Bombers have had a great start is an understatement.  They have stormed out of the gates with eight straight wins, good for first in the Bauer, SJHL and now ranked second in the country.  But of those eight wins, seven of them have come in the friendly confines of the Whitney Forum.  This game will be the first of four straight on the road and a big test in where they stand with the rest of the league.  This is the first of four games in five nights which sees them hit the south meeting up against Notre Dame, Weyburn and Estevan after their matchup with against the Terriers tonight.
