The Beaver Valley Nitehawks will try to keep a firm grip on top spot in the KIJHL with a win over the Golden Rockets tonight at the B.V. Arena.

The Rockets have fizzled for much of the season, plummeting to the basement in the Eddie Mountain division after finishing second last season and winning the division title. Nevertheless, they have been hot of late, taking 4-of-5 including victories over rivals Fernie and Columbia Valley.

The Nitehawks, meanwhile, have been cruising along with four straight wins and victories in 14 of their last 15, soaring to top spot in the Neil Murdoch division and a share of the KIJHL lead with the Kamloops Storm.

The Nitehawks have the most potent power play in the league by far, purring along at an almost 30 percent clip, after the Hawks scored seven times on 18 tries in three games last weekend.  The next best is the Kelowna Chiefs at 25.4 per cent success rate.

The game goes tonight at the Hawks Nest at 7:30 p.m.
