For the second weekend in a row, the Dynamiters are heading on the road to face off against teams in the Neil Murdoch division. On Friday the team travels across the border to Spokane to play the Braves (4-8-0-0), before going to West Kootenay to battle the Grand Forks Border Bruins (5-2-2-1) on Saturday.

The Braves are currently on a two-game losing skid. However, they have two players tied for first in league scoring: Paxton Malone with nine goals and 12 assists, and Mason Jones with five goals and 16 assists. Rounding out their top three scorers is rookie Carter Jones who has six goals and nine assists.

The Border Bruins are the surprise team of the season, thus far. They have seven players who are averaging a point a game or more. Leading the attack is 20-year-old Dylan Haney with seven goals and 11 assists, followed by Trey Mason with eight goals and nine assists.

They also have a dynamite power play operating at 26.47%, good enough for second in the league. Add in Anthony Galliart, who has been strong between the pipes with a .937 save percentage and 2.18 goals against average to accompany his 3-1-2 record, and you have a pretty good team.

The Dynamiters enter this weekend after a polarizing weekend which saw them dominate the Castlegar Rebels in the last 20 minutes en-route to a 6-1 victory, followed by a close 3-2 loss to division rivals, Columbia Valley Rockies. James Farmer is on a hot streak for the Nitros – he has had points in the last four games – getting seven along the way.

The Dynamiters look to continue to prove that they are a good road team by playing two full 60-minutes of hockey.

Puck drop for both games is at 8:00 PM.
