Rockies roll into Hawks Nest

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks are in action at home tonight against the Columbia Valley Rockies

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks are in action at home tonight against the Columbia Valley Rockies then on the road Saturday for a tilt against the Osoyoos Coyotes.

The Hawks are coming off a 4-3 overtime win against Princeton Posse Saturday, and face a Rockies team that doubled up the Spokane Braves 4-2 on Sunday.

While C.V. sits in fourth place of the Eddie Mountain division with just eight wins this season, they have proven a tough opponent at times, tying the Nelson Leafs early in the season and beating the Castlegar Rebels in overtime 6-5.

The Nitehawks are looking for their fourth win in a row, and 15th on the season, as they look to make up ground on the Neil Murdoch division Leafs who are currently 10 points ahead of the Hawks, although B.V. has two games in hand.

The Hawks Dallas Calvin has been on fire of late, netting 12 points in his last five games including a four-point night in a 4-0 shutout over the Braves last week.

The Rockies meanwhile are led by Ryan Henderson who has 17 goals and 11 assists in 23 games this season.  It is the two teams first meeting this year, with the puck dropping at 7:30 p.m. at the Beaver Valley Arena.

In Saturday’s game in Osoyoos, the Hawks will look to avenge a 4-1 loss to the Coyotes at home on Oct. 5. The ‘Yotes currently sit in second spot in the Okanagan division with 13 victories  and 11 losses.

The Nitehawks also host the Grand Forks Border Bruins on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
